Saturday Job: Create a gradated Box hedge

Saturday Job: Add a gradated box hedge

Use Box, otherwise known as Buxus sempervirens, to create a medium-height hedge featuring a gradation of colour, by planting foliage from dark to light. Typically the focus is on the floral aspect of a garden, but make sure you devote as much consideration you afford the flora elements, to the hedge, as once planted it is there for life, unlike some flowering species. So, push boundaries with your hedge, by choosing different shades to add visual interest for a thoroughly modern landscape.
