I’ve been thinking a lot about hedges during this winter season. As I walk around the sleeping garden, I’m trying to decide where hedges will help with snow drifting, wind, and provide much needed structure and interest. I’m also in need of hedges to close up spaces and break my very large garden into smaller, more intimate areas. I’ve always been enamored with hedges, I notice and photograph them everywhere I go. One place I particularly loved the hedges was in Sweden.
At the moment, I’ve selected a few different hedges to instal this summer. One is going to be a particularly large undertaking, around 400 beech plants around two side of the main garden in the back. This spring will be spent preparing the ground for them and hopefully I will be able to order them and get them planted in early summer. Here’s hoping we don’t have another drought this coming summer!
