I am seeking some advice regarding a hedge. In between our fence an
our driveway we have a space around and foot wide (at the widest) an
about 20 feet long. We would like to grow anything hedge-like that i
around 4ft or greater in height, but would be fairly narrow - an
Location makes a big difference. Do you want evergreen? A properly
trimmed hedge should be wider at the bottom than on the top (tapered
sides to get more even foliage coverage). My hedge is
rose-of-sharon. It's fairly narrow, tall, blooms, and requires little
care other than a yearly trim. Boxwood is another good one, although
I'm not sure which variety will grow to 4 foot.
Sounds like neighbor problems to me...
A one foot width is too narrow for any traditional "hedge". If it's
your fence and it's well ino your property then you can consider some
sort of vine that can be kept clipped short and narrow, maybe morning
glory. Were it me I'd simply plant an assortment of tall growing
flowering annuals and perennials; hollyhocks are nice.
Not in the UK; hedges between neighbours on each side are standard
practice here. Friendly neighbours commonly manage the boundary hedge
together and clip one side each. The open-plan front gardens seen in
America don't appeal to our island/castle mentality :-)
Nah, in the UK climate you can easily clip yew, box, berberis,
privet, cotoneaster or pyracantha into a low narrow dense hedge and keep
it like that for decades..as many do .
