Today most hedges are all one species and cut in dead straight lines, used like a wall to keep people from seeing the private world beyond.
So few hedges have any real purpose or interest that it is time to be different again. Mix up the species, add some flowering shrubs and sub-shrubs, possibly a small tree as a focal point. Then try planting the hedge in a curvey manner creating little pockets of space to become hidden secrets in your garden. A quiet spot to sit and read in the shade on a hot day, a hidden fragrent shrub so that people wonder where that sweat smell is coming from, or a hidden rock feature only you know is there. The possibilities are endless.
