Benefits of Instant Hedges

At Hortlands we believe our fully formed instant hedges are horticultural wonders but why do our customers rate our hedges so highly?

Here, in no particular order are their 10 main reasons:

  • Privacy, an instant screen
  • All year round leaf coverage (evergreens)
  • Seasonal colours and textures (deciduous)
  • Wildlife havens
  • Wind barrier and shelters
  • Security (especially the prickly ones!)
  • Sound barrier, and filtering of traffic pollution
  • More economical and far more attractive than fences and brick walls
  • Longevity – our instant hedges can last hundreds of years
  • Easily maintained
