Beech Instant Hedge

We have 2000m of 1.8m (approx. 6ft) high UK grown Instant Beech Hedge available to plant right now. This is premium product is the best in class in terms of the size, density and quality; it is perfect for high end projects that demand a superior finish.

Common Beech or Fagus sylvatica is deciduous tree, native to the UK and its rich golden/brown autumn foliage is its outstanding feature. This tree is adaptable and makes a fantastic hedge and is one our most popular instant hedges, for its seasonal variation and native heritage. Beech’s attractive foliage emerges bright lime green before changing to the stunning autumnal colours.

When grown as a hedge, and trimmed in August, the leaves will usually be retained throughout the majority of the winter, which enhances the Beech hedge’s appeal as it offers a year-round screen.

Beech hedging is tolerant of most soil types, although it doesn’t like heavy clay (here Hornbeam would be a better choice). Beech prefers free draining soils including chalk and can be planted in all but the deepest of shade.

 

Instant Hedge Benefits

Hedges are cost effective, compared to a brick wall and form an attractive boundary more quickly than many gardeners imagine.

They can create a strong framework for the garden, so that it looks good in midwinter and is adapt at providing an attractive background to carry the beautiful floral decoration of spring and summer. As well as providing structure to the garden, they can be perfect for wildlife, and particularly nesting birds.

Planting a mature, instant hedge has the following benefits:

  • We have taken the time to grow the hedges, so you don’t have to!
  • Shelter: reducing wind strength better than a solid barrier
  • Filter: absorbing dust and noise
  • Privacy: as an effective visual screen, particularly evergreen hedging
  • Security: a prickly hedge is a great intruder deterrent
  • Beauty and interest from seasonal changes, particularly deciduous hedging
  • Background texture and colour complement other plants
  • Wildlife: food and shelter for a wide variety of native insects, birds and mammals
  • Weather-resistance: much better than manmade fences or brick walls
  • Economy long term compared with fencing and brick work
  • Long-lived: hedges can last hundreds of years
  • Can be planted to shape, such as a curve
  • Easy to maintain; see our notes on maintaining your instant hedge.
