Can I replace my wooden fence by QuickHedge?
Yes, without problem. It may be necessary to improve the soil, but your garden specialist / horticulturist will be able to judge that.
Can I mix various types?
Yes. QuickHedge consists of one metre elements. By mixing various types you can plant a hedge of your choice. In practice, green and red beech are often alternated. But of course there are many more possibilities for mixing hedge types.
How long will QuickHedge last?
In principle, QuickHedge will last a lifetime. However, as it is a natural product things may happen that cause the hedge to deteriorate or even die. Development, paving, storm damage or other causes may impair the vitality of the hedge. Under normal conditions QuickHedge will easily last for 20 years or longer.

This depends on a number of factors. Normally, cutting twice a year will be sufficient. One maintenance cutting in late spring and one in summer will produce a manicured appearance. If the hedge grows very fast it has to be cut more often.
