While trees and shrubs don’t get replaced every year like vegetables, planting with diversity in mind adds variety to the landscape. If you are still considering how to replace the hedge that was destroyed during a hurricane or damaged by insects or disease, here is a suggestion that you may find helpful.

Rather than planting a hedge dominated by a single species of shrub, consider planting a mixed border with three plants of one species, then one to three plants of another species. Use this pattern with three to five different species to get a really diverse group of plants. Select some plants that have fragrant flower, others with big beautiful flowers, and maybe some with pretty fruit to give you interest throughout the year.
