A hedge can only do so much when it comes to blocking noise out, but they can still make quite a difference. Here are four of our favourite noise reducing / soundproofing hedges that will help to buffer noise whilst looking great in your garden.
The mighty popular Fagus sylvatica, well known as Beech hedging, is full of flickering leaves that have delicate gold-green colours, which then gradually turn a deep, rich copper in the Autumn. Although the Beech hedge is deciduous, it is sometimes known as semi-deciduous due to the way its bold winter leaves stay on the hedge until they are ready for new leaves in the spring.
The Oleaster hedge plant, or also known by its Latin name of ‘Elaeagnus x ebbingei,’ is a favourite amongst the varieties of hedging. The Elaeagnus ebbingei is a hardy, tough plant that likes to showcase delicate, small white flowers in the autumn, and then burst through little orange berries in spring.
A very hardy and robust shrub, the Spindle ‘Emerald ‘n’ Gold’ is very popularly loved by gardeners for its striking colours and low maintenance.
The Photinia Red Robin is a beautiful evergreen hedge that showcases glossy, red leaves in the spring and summer seasons, before they then go onto maturing into stunning dark green foliage. Best yet, wildlife is attracted to the Photinia x fraseri for its flowers and red berries, that burst through from autumn to winter.
