Incredible Benefits of Instant Hedges

by | Mar 21, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Instant hedging often refers to hedge units, grown within troughs, that have benefitted from being frequently pruned, while making sure the plants themselves form together to form one solid, rigid hedging unit. The root systems of the plant form together too, making for a healthy, strong hedge with an outstanding success rate once it has been planted. The fact that they can be planted at any time of year makes them an equally vital addition to your garden!


Firstly, you’ll be pleased to know that the instant hedges work so effectively because of their ability to create immediate presence and character within your garden or outside area. Whereas it might take you years to grow a hedge in the normal fashion, with instant hedges you can get a higher degree of reassurance and peace of mind knowing that once installed, you can leave the hedges as they are! They require very little maintenance, at most a prune twice every year, so you can get to work enjoying your beautiful garden instead.

Variety and Nature

Another key benefit is the variety of hedges on offer, with a wide array of availability. From our popular trough range to the more unconventional but highly mobile readybag options, the benefits of this variety can be identified easily when we consider the immediate uptake in wildlife and nature in your area as a result. An instant hedge makes an outstanding shelter for many different forms of wildlife and is able to shield your outside area or garden from wind that could normally prevent certain animals from exploring. While fences might be easy to rapidly erect, they do not offer much in the way of shelter or habitat for any animals that might like to enter your garden. Instant hedges create a unique and flourishing ecosystem for a variety of localised fauna, so if you’re a natural lover, give it a go!

Cost Effective

When you examine the cost involved in maintaining brickwork or fencing, it makes sense that investing in instant hedges could be recognised as the better option for considerations regarding long-term economies of scale. Hedges are incredibly long-lasting, and since instant hedges in particular require little maintenance, you could save yourself a vast amount of future expense! If you’re particularly looking to save on those pounds, then instant hedging is something worth considering.


Instant hedges provide an incredible level of flexibility in their implementation around your garden or outside area. Trying to erect a fence in a circular or curved shape is never going to work, but with instant hedges the possibilities are endless. Because of this improved flexibility, you can get creative with your designs and plans by coming up with something truly original. Remember to think outside the box and take advantage of all the benefits instant hedging has to offer.
