Selecting a hedge plant

Oliver Martin asked 11 years ago

I want to plant a hedge on a sloped garden. Because the garden is only 24Ft wide I want a low tight evergreen hedge and want to maintain the hedge at approx 2Ft in height. A tall hedge wouldn’t look right. Can you suggest 2 evergreen plants that would go well together if planted alternatively on both sides of the garden? The soil is clay with some stones but is well dug. The slope can get some strong wind also from the side.

Almost any broadleaved evergreen would be fine … such as holly, box, griselinia, privet, olearia or lauristinus.

But do not alternate them as they have differing growth rates.
