Hedging plants are useful for a variety of reasons. Tall hegdes are great between yards so you can have privacy from your neighbours. Lower hedges can be used to create a border between areas and to soften fence lines. Some varieties can be used purely for aesthetic appeal. You can even create your own secret garden using hedges where no one can see in and you get to escape for a while, sit, read and meditate, what ever you like, with no interuptions.
Part of the reason for the revival in hedging plants is the increased use of low cost, long arm and standard hedge trimmers that can hedge plants in a fraction of the time than it used to take. Pruning can be done more often at a lower cost of time and money, and without the back-breaking work.
