Requirement

The client has a beautiful house with extensive established gardens, set in a conservation area of a quintessential Hampshire village. He wished to develop and divide his land, whilst maintaining the mature look.

Products supplied

The answer was UK-grown instant hedges from Practicality Brown, as they provide the immediate impact and necessary maturity to complement the existing landscape.

This instant hedging is a premium product, the best in class in terms of the size, density and quality; it is perfect for high-end projects that demand a superior finish, as was the case for this English country garden.

Matching Beech hedges

Green Beech instant hedging was selected, not only to match the existing hedge, but also for its year-round screening ability and seasonal interest. This required the new hedge to be planted in the middle, seamlessly linking to the mature existing hedges on either side.

Beech (or Fagus sylvatica) is native to the UK and has attractive foliage that emerges bright lime green before changing to rich golden/brown autumnal colours, its outstanding feature. It is adaptable and is one the company's most popular instant hedges, for its seasonal variation and native heritage.

Further hedging

Other elements of this project included supplying and planting:

  • Yew instant hedge to help create a stunning driveway
  • native mix hedging that worked well on the boundary
  • two mature specimen trees

Availability

Practicality Brown has 2000m of 1.8m (approx. 6ft) high UK-grown Instant Beech Hedge available.

Grown from small plants, it matures into a clipped hedge at the nursery. It is then lifted to order, transported to site and planted with the pieces in the same order as they were in at the nursery. Practicality Brown is able to effectively transplant a mature pre-formed hedge from the nursery to the client’s garden. There is no need to wait for the plants to grow taller or together as the finished product is there from the moment of planting.

Beech hedging is tolerant of most soil types, although it doesn’t like heavy clay (Hornbeam would be a better choice). Beech prefers free-draining soils, including chalk, and can be planted in all but the deepest of shade. This instant hedge is perfect for providing year-round screening.
