Create a hedge with year-round interest using these reliable evergreens.

A well-maintained evergreen hedge has various uses in the garden. It can serve as a boundary, it can help to block out noise and unwanted views and, of course, it makes an attractive feature in its own right.

Evergreen hedging also provides year-round shelter for garden wildlife, such as birds, which is especially important in winter months. Some evergreens also provide flowers and berries, serving as a food source for birds, pollinators and other wildlife.
