Benefits and features of Fast Growing Hedges

Fast growing hedge plants have many features and benefits for your garden including;

  • Fast growth rates: Our fastest growing hedges grow quickly, with a rate of at least 60cm a year depending on growing conditions. Pruning can be done in early spring, keeping hedges to a manageable height.

  • Privacy: One of the main benefits of fast growing hedges is their ability to quickly create a privacy screen. This is especially important for properties with close neighbors or those that are situated near busy roads.

  • Security: Fast growing hedges can also act as a barrier, providing additional security for your property. Their dense and robust nature makes them difficult to pass through, deterring intruders.

  • Wildlife value: Many fast growing hedgerows are also great for wildlife, providing a habitat for birds, small mammals and insects. This can help to create a more diverse and natural environment in your garden.

  • Natural windbreak: With their rapid growth and dense foliage, fast-growing hedges are also effective at creating a natural windbreak. This can be particularly beneficial in reducing wind and protecting more delicate plants in your garden, reducing soil erosion, and even lowering heating costs by buffering your home from cold winds.

  • Cost effective plants: Due to their quick growing nature, you can purchase smaller plants that will soon fill out with new growth, saving you money compared to buying larger, more expensive plants. They are by far the most cost effective choice, when considering planting a new hedge.
