Hedge Therapy

The banking to the north of our site, besides being covered in trees, had invasive snowberry shrubs in profusion. When we built the magnificently sinuous Midland Railway style fence set just back from our boundary wall we thought we would try snowberry as a hedge. It worked reasonably well but needed cutting hard and often which was becoming quite a chore. Also, the hedge having grown taller than the fence almost totally obscured the now magnificent garden on the embankment.

Here is the fence under construction and with the maturing hedge, showing the set-up:

The last couple of weeks have seen the removal of the hedge in favour of the fence, in front of which I shall encourage ground ivy to take over.

Picture of the completed job to follow in a few days, you lucky people.
