Hedges help to hide nosy neighbours, reduce noise, protect you from the wind and add a safe house for birds. TreeWorks can order and plant your hedges at any height to create instant privacy that doesn’t have the glare or heat reflection of aluminum fencing.  Here’s a list of our go-to plants for Canberra for anyone wanting hedging in a hurry.  Give us a call on 1800 873 343 if you would like us to hedge your garden.
