How to Pick the Perfect Hedge

Charlie from Selling Houses Australia guides you through picking the perfect hedge for your garden.

It may look simple, but a hedge can be a lot of work.

Fortunately, I have the best tips and tricks for which hedges work best - and where!

Lily Pily's are great for marking boundaries. They are great for zoning parts of your backyard, and are also fast-growing.

Leighton Greens are good for "screening" - whether that's to help your privacy, or cover unsightly fencing or walls.

Box Hedges or Buxus are great for defining edges, such as the sides of footpaths or driveways. When lining these places it's best to keep your hedge short. You may also consider using shrubs for a similar effect. 

When it comes to maintenance you will need to start trimming as the hedges are growing to keep the firmly in shape.
