How do I plant my InstantHedge?
InstantHedge installation is a very simple process.
For 3-6’ tall InstantHedge, dig a trench 12” deep by 18” wide to your desired length. Place the hedge units in the trench, still in their cardboard boxes, making sure they are nice and snug up against each other (you can even cut the ends off the boxes to make sure you don’t have any gaps). Backfill, water well, and mulch around the root zone. These hedge units are grown in the field and harvested with our native soil, so each unit is heavy (around 250 lbs). We recommend having 2-3 strong people or equipment to move the units.
For 18-24” MiniHedges, dig a trench that is 7” deep by 12” wide to your desired length. Lift the hedge units from their pots and place in the trench end to end. Backfill, water in, and mulch around the root zone. These hedges are container grown in a soilless medium so they are lightweight (under 40 lbs) and easy for 1-2 people to lift and plant.
