Formal Hedges

This site has a huge list of hedging for you to buy. Surprisingly (at first sight) there are relatively few that are widely used for formal hedges. On closer examination the reason becomes obvious. The plants you find in formal hedges do the job wonderfully well. Beech, be it copper of green grows anywhere there is drainage and some light. Yew will just about grow in the dark, and Hornbeam certainly will (and loves the heavy ground that beech does not. Laurel kills noise and light pollution and holly clips beautifully. And all of these plants are just about bombproof and all of them forgive the worst mistakes you can make when you are clipping them.
