Hedges vs Fences

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now. The more I do so, the more I am convinced that a hedge may be the best type of fencing. The benefits it offers as a wind shelter is pretty clear. However, add to that a large population of deep rooted mineral raising trees that help maintain the fertility of the land and the benefits seem to be worth looking at.

Obviously, the biggest issue is that there is a larger learning curve for my learning hedgelaying than there is with ‘conventional’ fencing. Also, there is the fact that there will be a one to three year growing period of the hedge itself …

More research is required me thinks.
