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.

So, push boundaries with your hedge, by choosing different shades to add visual interest for a thoroughly modern landscape.
