Hedging our bets
As spring approaches we are getting ready to start the planting at our latest project in Belsize Avenue. The first order of business has been to select the hedges. The brief from the client was for a low maintenance evergreen hedge to provide privacy. Our preference is typically for deciduous options as they offer more interest across the changing seasons. In the end we have found a solution that keeps everybody happy. We will now be planting a Quercus Ilex along the boundary wall and a shorter Forsythia in front of the Quercus. Evergreen and deciduous, seasonality and privacy, colour and structure, happy clients and happy designers!
