Hedging & Screening

Here at Decor we have Japanese Box, Griselinia and Corokia which are our biggest sellers- and you won't find a better grade. Are you searching for the answer to the easy care garden and wonder how you can best do this, whilst also creating a garden that is inviting and a place that you want to spend time in? The answer is in good edges and hedges!

The rest of the garden could be an absolute shambles with weeds galore, but if hidden behind a hedge (low or high) that is well maintained, then no-one would ever know. It is all about first impressions, and drawing the eye to what looks good and not bad!

Hedges and edges can pull a garden together. “Less is more” certainly applies here. You could consider a low edge of flowering annuals such as pansies, lobelia or alyssum. Or how about something a little higher like parsley, rainbow silverbeet or Dianthus. Lambs Ear, dwarf Agapanthus, Liriope (for the shade)and mondo grass are also good for edging.

Hedges are fantastic as screens, wind breaks and garden tidiers. Consider how high you want the hedge to get to and then make a choice. A favourite low to medium growing hedge is the Japanese Box, Buxus Microphylla. This can be trimmed to 30cm or let it get taller to 1.2m.  It is quick to grow and disease free. This is the hedge that we have along the road front at Decor Gardenworld. English Box is another goody.

If you want something taller then you can’t go past New Zealand’s favourite, the native Griselinia Broadway Mint. It is green and lush looking and tough as old boots. Camellia Setsugekka is also a Tauranga favourite, which has the bonus of white flowers in the winter time and again it is easy care.

Photinia Red Robin is a goody if you want something with a lovely red leaf tone.
