Here Bleow we are discussing abot hegdes:-

• Hawthorns

Hawthorns are the most common type of shrubs that were formerly used for the treatment of heart disease but recently they have been added up in the category of decorative as well as the defensive plants. These thorny shrubs grow up to the height of 5 feet throughout the world especially the sunny wood areas and on hillsides.

They also called Mayflower, May blossom or Quick thorns due to their characteristics thorny features and flowers blooming in May appearing in red, pink or white clusters. The leaves grow in a wide variety of sizes and shape with shiny appearance. The plant is a famous native deciduous plant known for hedging.

The leaves are bright green in color with a red ting and 3, 5 or7 lobs. It is actually a very fast growing plant that required trimming after every flowering or in autumn season. The hawthorn hedges are the most frequently grown ones as they are suitable for every soil type whether it be extremely wet soil or dense shade. Another important thing to quote here is that hawthorns are second most advantageous plants for the fauna.

• Laurel hedges

Then is the laurel hedging which is another most common type of hedging plant used for gardening purposes. Laurel hedges are observed to be almost as tall as 10 feet in height that creates an impermeable and thick barrier around the residence.

The plant is grown most rapidly and makes its mark as a significant conventional hedging plant. It forms one of the most workable choices for those looking for privacy and security hedges. Now, coming with the features of the plant it consists of plenty of green leaves giving glossy appearance. The plant requires frequent trimming.

• Privet hedges

Finally let's have a word about privet hedges that are usually grown in mid-March which is the most suitable time for renovating majority of shrubs as this is the arrival of the growing season with the warmth of spring.

Green privets are actually evergreen shrubs or you can say most appropriately a semi-evergreen shrub. This is because the plant shads off its leaves in severe winters putting back new ones as soon as the spring arrives indicating that the plant is generally evergreen.

Privet plants grow well everywhere other than soil logged with water. The leaves are dense forming heavily bushy hedges growing at the rate of 1-2 feet each year requiring pruning a couple of times in the summers to encourage the density of the hedge. It is recommended to grow privet plants 1-2 feet apart from each other as the closer they will be grown the thicker and denser will be the hedge.

Taking about hedges, they not only add up to the beauty of your house but also prove to be a sort of hindrance for the traffic noise and the intruders being defensive in function due to their thorns and prickly leaves. Some of the most common plants that are used for the hedging purpose are Hawthorns, privets and the laurels.
