InstantHedge, a nursery based in Canby, Ore., will release its live, ready-to-plant hedges in spring 2018.

“Rather than waiting years for a traditional planting to grow together to form a screen, our InstantHedge provides immediate gratification as a ready-made solution for privacy and design,” said Brent Markus, founder of InstantHedge.

Each panel—consisting of four trees—is 40 inches and is available in heights of 3 to 4 feet or 5 to 6 feet and a thickness of 16 inches.

The hedges are delivered in plantable, biodegradable cardboard containers. There are three units per pallet and 90 units per truckload.

The trees have been cultivated for more than five years by experienced hands and precision-agricultural technologies, said the company.

Local satellite, high-frequency GPS guides InstantHedge’s patented equipment for planting, watering, root pruning, delicate sculpting and harvesting, ensuring uniformity and consistent quality.

InstantHedge currently offers thirteen varieties of evergreen and deciduous trees in heights ranging from four to six feet. The hedge units can be planted in any configuration and can conform to any landscape design.

Evergreen varieties include:

  • Buxus x. ‘Green Mountain’ – Green Mountain Boxwood;
  • Prunus laurocerasus – English or Cherry Laurel;
  • Prunus lusitanica – Portuguese Cherry Laurel;
  • Taxus x. media ‘Hicksii’ – Yew;
  • Prunus laurocerasus ‘Schipkaensis’ – Schipka Cherry Laurel;
