Hornbeam Hedge in Pennsylvania. A sheared fastigiate European hornbeam hedge (under-planted with liriope) lines a driveway in Villanova, PA. Designer John Shandra of Gale Nurseries wanted to create a sharp, clean line between public and private space.
Simple and clean lines contrast with bold green foliage to create a lush tropical oasis. The main focus of the space is the glass edged pool flanked by tall leafy plants, creating privacy and a sense of enclosure.
