Landscaping With Privet Hedge Plants
Want a little landscaping done to your garden? A privet hedge can help you do that. A privet hedge landscaping plant, apart from delivering privacy to the dweller, signifies to be a green tribute to a sublime landscape design. A member of the Ligustrum genus, privet hedges require regular pruning and a moderately temperate planting environment. They are sometimes known as privet shrubs and became popular in suburban American yards during the middle of the 20th century. As a universal rule, privet hedges are planted in a trench that is two feet (0.6 meters) wide and two feet (0.6 meters) deep. They are spaced one foot (0.3 meters) apart within the trench. Over the first year, a privet hedge should be watered regularly, usually through means of drip irrigation. While a privet hedge matures, it forms a natural wall-like shape, providing privacy to homeowners. Though the shrub is flat and boxlike by nature, it typically requires frequent pruning to keep its shape.
While not a traditional “high maintenance” type of landscaping plant, privet hedges do demand a certain amount of attention to serve their important role in maintaining privacy as well as their lush appearance. A privet hedge will sprout flowers after 330 growing days. The blossoms are aromatic and small. They grow on tiny clusters and are usually white in color.
