Rae Wilkinson

We used an instant hedge from Practicality Brown for our RHS Hampton Court garden this year. I had struggled to find what I was looking for with other suppliers and Practicality Brown was extremely helpful and accommodating.  It found what I wanted and sent me photos prior to delivery as I was not able to visit to hand pick them. I have specified its hedging on other projects which has always been good quality.

Tracy Foster

I have loved working with Practicality Brown over the years because I know it offers sturdy field grown stock, including the lovely mixed native hedging that I recently ordered for RHS Chelsea.  The other great thing about ordering is the service, which is always friendly and helpful.  Its cliché but really nothing is too much trouble.

Paul Martin

I have had the pleasure of working with Practicality Brown on major projects and show gardens over the years. It has helped enormously in our attaining of three Gold medals at RHS shows including Chelsea and Hampton Court, which is a testament to its staff, products and company

and Lisa Cox

I worked with Practicality Brown on a domestic project where we needed to screen off a house. We wanted a solution that would do the job from day one and chose Elveden beech instant hedging. This was more subtle than a wall or fence and looked amazing from day one – you wouldn’t have known it had just been planted

We supplied a Quercus Robur (English Oak) which was 30 cm girth with a spread of about 3 metres and around 7 metres high.

elegant trees for front garden

Elegant trees for impact

A private client in Walton on Thames was seeking trees to complement their front garden and selected trees from our nursery, under the guidance of our experienced horticultural specialist. Five deciduous trees were chosen for appearance and suitability for their location. The chosen trees were a Purple Beech (Fagus sylvatica ‘Purpurea’) with a girth of 35-40cm girth, a Sweet Gum Read more

appleton Liriodendron 011

Large Trees for maximum impact

With a reputation for planting big trees, we were asked to plant three very large, semi mature tulip trees (Liriodendron), at a private garden on the Oxfordshire/ Berkshire borders. Over 13 metres tall and girth circumferences of 100cm+, these trees required careful transportation, lifting and handling during installation. See the hedge & tree projects page for more images.

Yew Hedging plants

Evergreen Instant Hedge delights another customer

The customers requirement was simple, an effective screen from passing ramblers.

We suggested Yew hedging plants at 2.5 metre high and 79 linear metres was carefully planned and planted in just two days.   In addition, Elveden Instant Hedge in Native Mix was planted in another area of the property, helping to create a mature garden and privacy that the client craved.  The client gave us the following testimonial:

Elveden Instant hedge new build

Soft green touch on a new development

The new development of individually styled period houses was softened into the environment by the judicious installation of evergreen Elveden Instant Hedge.

Common Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifloia’) was chosen for its soft, pale green, fresh look and its even, vigorous growth that provides a year round hedge which reliably screens any new build project. Common Yew (Taxus baccata) was used on the front boundary to add a touch of classic evergreen maturity and sense of time to the development.
