Hey guys..... Wanted to share my thoughts regarding a hedge I just created.
Every terrace house on my street has a traditional clipped hedge....Not me! I planted a row of Yucca and a mix of dry style ground covers.
I think it looks fantastic! (Will share a photo with you later) The plants are drought tolerant and maintenance free. The yucca's actually provide a pretty good privacy screen.
Give it it a go.

That sounds great, I can't wait to see a photo, I'm wanting to plant a hedge thats a little different. I have planted a hedge of old man saltbush & it looks awesome, the foliage looks great next to the green lawn.

Choose drought tolerant plants which were raised with low water levels, in the same climate where you will grow them. Harvest rain AND storm water.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
