Ornamental Hedges Provide Beauty and Shelter for Wildlife

Ornamental Hedges Beauty Shelter for Wildlife | HC Companies

Nursery growers plant a wide variety of trees and shrubs throughout their growing operations. Ornamental hedges are one popular plant cultivated throughout North American – sought after by residential and commercial customers to help soften hardscapes.

While ornamental hedges are often regarded as nothing more than a decorative element in your overall landscape design, their benefits are far greater.

The editors at Gardeners’ World Magazine state, “Far more interesting than a fence, a hedge can last many years, providing security and privacy, shelter for wildlife, as well as beauty and interest. What’s more, hedges filter wind better than hard structures, reducing its velocity. Hedging makes a wonderful foil for other plants and can even make your garden look bigger.”
