Find Your Perfect Edging Plants With Hedge Xpress

For many of our customers, we are as much ‘edge’ as ‘hedge’ and we classify larger growing plant varieties as ‘boundary’ and the smaller growing ones as ‘edging’. Therefore, whether you are looking to create an attractive edge to a border, path or island bed or a more elaborate parterre, we offer an excellent selection of fragrant lavenders and the ever versatile box in standard and dwarf varieties. We have listed some uses of edging or low garden hedges below:


  1. Edging: Low hedges can be used to edge garden beds, defining the boundaries and adding structure to the design. This can help keep plants contained and prevent them from spilling over onto walkways or other areas.
  2. Bordering: Low hedges can also be used to create borders around paths or other areas of the garden. This can help direct foot traffic and create a sense of organisation and order.
  3. Focal point: Low hedges can be used as a focal point in the garden, especially when they are planted in interesting shapes or patterns. They can also be used to frame a particular feature, such as a statue or fountain.
  4. Privacy: While low hedges may not provide as much privacy as taller hedges, they can still be effective at creating a sense of enclosure and seclusion within the garden.
  5. Design element: Low hedges can be a design element in their own right, adding texture, color, and shape to the garden. They can also be used to create interesting patterns and designs, such as knot gardens or parterres.

Overall, low hedges are a versatile and attractive addition to any garden, offering a range of practical and aesthetic benefits.
