Boundaries, borders and shelter are essential parts of any garden, but they can be the most difficult to get right. The excitement of buying new hedging plants can quickly be overtaken by difficult upkeep, damage to surrounding plants and a costly waste of time. Whether you’re planting a new hedge from scratch, restoring a neglected one or creating softer internal divides within the garden, this book provides the planning, planting and maintenance know-how to do it right, first time. Coverage includes: assessment, preparation and design advice for establishing a new living boundary; advice on dealing with existing boundaries in need of restoration or extension; considerations to take into account for both your human and wildlife neighbours and finally, there are directories of hedging plants, climbers and trees to aid your selection.
