LIVING HEDGE – planting from formed or freely growing trees or shrubs (or their combination) in order to obtain closed impermeable plantings. They are usually cut into the shape of a green wall. Based on the purpose, hedges are one-, two-, three-row and different heights.

Plants are used that lend themselves well to shearing, such as: hawthorn, western thuja, privet, brilliant cotoneaster.

Hedges made of a brilliant cotoneaster adorn the courtier of the Mikhailovsky Palace and the alleys of the Engineering Square.
