A Three-Tiered Hedge
When restoring Morton Hall, we moved a disused pedestrian gate from the South Garden to the Park. We chose to plant an unusual three-tiered hedge in its place, which, together with two ‘blobs’ of Portuguese laurel, lent an interesting backdrop to one of our favourite statues.
The lowest tier is a semi-circular yew hedge. The middle tier consists of hornbeam, and the highest tier of beech, blending in with the main boundary beech hedge along the lane.
The three-tiered hedge is clipped in summer and tidied a second time in autumn.
