Evergreen hedges and trees are popular all across the UK, with many homeowners and property managers choosing them on a daily basis for their outdoor spaces due to the wide variety of benefits that they offer.
By definition, an evergreen is a plant, tree or hedge that maintains leaves all-year round, even keeping their luscious green leaves. Plants that do not keep their leaves all year round are called deciduous plants, and although these can look beautiful, they generally don’ stay looking great all year-round, which is of course a huge downfall.
