Pleached hedges - for when you have something high you want to cover

If you have something high you want to hide or cover e.g. if you want to screen off your neighbour's house (especially if they have a very tall house and you can't legally build a fence as tall), then a pleached hedge is a good option to create the same effect. The pleached olive hedge in the photo is trimmed regularly on the sides and top to keep the clean lines. The lower branches have been trimmed and underplanted with clivias and mondo grass, both good for a shady environment. Other plant options for pleaching are Bay Trees, Camellias, Bay Laurel, Michelias and Totara.
