Hedges are great additions to gardens, providing a green background to other plantings and screening out views you do not want to see, whether that is a utility area around your house or a neighbor’s yard. But they can be tricky to grow and keep looking neat and full at the same time.
Friday I attended a special event at Otten Bros. in Long Lake featuring Jamie Durie of HGTV’s The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie. (Full disclosure: My ticket to the event was complimentary.) Jamie had a lot of good advice about designing human-scale spaces, but I thought this video clip on what to do if you have a hole your hedge was worth passing on. Bottom line: If you have a hole, make a bigger one!
