Hedging in coastal areas is often subject to quite harsh conditions. Salty air and high winds aren't ideal for all plants, but some are quite happy growing in these areas. On coastal sites near the sea, hedging protects from storm waves and wind, absorbs excess water, and reduces erosion. This type of hedging has been used for centuries and is becoming increasingly popular in coastal areas worldwide due to its ability to protect coastal communities from the impacts of climate change. Bowhayes have some excellent hedging for you, whether you are overlooking the sea and needing protection or just in an area that suffers from the salty air nearby. Generally, this type of hedging is hardy and will grow in any challenging position, including inland exposed areas, or it likes the more sunny, slightly moist air.
