  • Square or rectangular paving and patios to match hedging borders 
  • Formal avenues of trees along driveways or fences 


High maintenance. Formal hedges and topiaries need a lot of maintenance to keep them in shape. When they start to grow out of their shape, they make the overall design look unsightly and depending on which plant you have hedged you could be trimming a lot! Regular watering and fertilizers in the warmer months help maintain healthy and strong plants.
