It started to go white last night. We have a couple of inches settled, but I dont think it will last, it is very wet.

Hedge Borders

Posted: 16/01/2016 at 15:33

I think hedges in gardens are a throwback to hedges in fields. They are markers of the edge of a property. Hedges within gardens make rooms in the manner of Vita Sackville West at Sissinghurst. Each room in a large garden can have a different theme. In many gardens the hedges are there for shelter. A hedge will filter wind and there is a more benevolent micro climate than an open field. A wall or fence that is solid does not do this,instead eddies and vortices are set up which can be more damaging than the wind on its own.
