Hedge is usually planted to reduce the environment noise, to protect us against the wind or simply to separate us from the neighbours. High hedges often mark the borders of our land. Lower ones mark some part of our estate and at the same time work as decoration.
If you have enough patience and vigour, you can create miraculous things with your garden shears. Hedges and garden sculptures are so charming! As a matter of fact, green figures can be made using common grass only!
Some gardening shops specialise in topiaries, plants dedicated to be shaped. Have a look at a few examples. Perhaps some of them will inspire you!
