Hedges make a graceful addition to any garden space. Some hedges are better suited to decoration, while others serve more practical purposes. For instance, a hedge can be an excellent way to secure your property if you are not interested in installing fencing. Hedges, like fences, can also serve as privacy fences from nosy neighbors.

If you do decide to go forward with planting hedges or if you already have some hedges that need a little TLC, here are a few suggestions of things you can do to avoid common hedge hacking mistakes.
