What makes a garden, a lawn, or a property impressive and unforgettable? One answer would be uniquely designed hedges.
Hedges are created to serve a variety of purposes in a certain space. The most common purpose is to create a boundary around a property. Hedges are also added to create a beautiful backdrop that blends well with the surroundings. In addition, they serve as borders or outlines to pathways to protect the plant-beds from being stepped on.
Besides aesthetics, hedges also create solitary outdoor living spaces by offering more privacy around your property. They also reduce noise and block strong winds.
To get the most out of your hedges, it would be best to incorporate unique designs in your garden or property.
Hedges as living fences
Instead of using fences to separate the structural area in your property from your landscape or garden, why not use hedges instead? Tall hedges can be planted and formed as living fences to bridge the space between a commercial building and a landscape or between your home and your garden.
Hedges as mazes
Hedges used to create labyrinths and mazes never get old. The complexity and mystery of the designs will definitely grab every person’s attention. They give a space a different look not commonly seen anywhere.
Hedges as vertical gardens
Vertical gardens, also called wall gardens, have been thriving since ancient civilization. Incorporating hedges in your vertical garden will give your wall an elegant and sleek look.
Shaped hedges as borders
Aside from the usual geometrical shapes you find as borders and outlines, hedges can also be trimmed to form other structures. They can be trimmed to look like your favorite cartoon character or they can be formed into animal shapes.
Your own sense of style
What better way to create a unique hedge design, than to incorporate your own style vision? By adding your personal flair, you can create designs and pieces that are significant to you.
A fusion of distinct styles
Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? A combination of contemporary and old-fashioned hedge designs can give your property an unparalleled look.
