New build homes come with many advantages, but one issue that comes up quite often is a lack of privacy; due to densely built upon areas. Your garden is likely to be left to you as a blank slate to do with what you please, which is great. In most cases, front gardens are the first areas to work on as they can leave your house feeling very ‘open’.
Hedges can be an effective security, and privacy, perimeter for your home, whilst looking great. However, waiting for a hedge to grow beyond a foot can be painstakingly tedious, even for the most patient of us. Lucky for you, we have a variety of fast growing hedges for a quick solution.
Fast growing hedges can give you an instant fix for your empty borders. They can prove to be a really cost-effective way to fill the space in your garden. Within a couple of years, you can achieve a full, tall and evergreen hedge.
Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus)
Our fast-growing Cherry Laurel hedges grow well in most environments, adding up to 60cm of growth each year. The dense evergreen hedges look amazing and produce small white flowers in Spring, then cherry-like berries in Autumn. We stock fast growing Cherry Laurel hedges in a range of heights, from 60-200cm.
Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata)
A very different looking plant to the Laurel, but still just as attractive. Western Red Cedar looks similar to Leylandii and grows almost as fast. It’s a bushy evergreen hedge with perfumed leaves. We sell the fast growing Western Red Cedar hedges in heights of 80-100cm.
