Ready Made Hedge Troughs & Instant Hedging Planters

Our range of instant hedging and green screens is made up of some of the most popular varieties of hedging plants. These super durable outdoor decorative furniture are fixed in fibreglass planters that measure 720 mm in length x 200mm in depth x 200mm in height and create an instant dramatic green effect. Designed for long term exterior display, the UV stable foliage are carefully stapled onto the external double coated plywood frame to produce our range of instant hedging. Our choice of instant hedges includes: Boxwood, Ivy Leaf, Clover and Floral.

For those customers seeking an immediate, impressive impact these hedging troughs and planters, which are suitable for outdoor display all year round, are a superb option as the plants have knitted together giving the appearance of a ready grown hedge that would take up to 5 years to achieve with real plants.

Because of the bespoke hedge building services on height, our instant hedging is perfectly suited for your unique requirement. If you're looking for prefect fit garden quality hedging, you've found it. 

The cost of this quality ready made hedge planters is no higher than more conventional real hedge, so if your space or time does not permit real grown hedging, then have a look at our bespoke hedge building services page, or consider our many sizes of UV fade protected artificial topiary balls. You may also be interested in our artificial mixed plants which have an instant green wall effect. Our team will willingly give advice on how best to achieve the effect you are seeking within your budget - please call us on 0161 477 7419.

Here are the key points that we think you need to know when ordering ready made instant hedging;


  • We use a local supplier Europlanter for our fibreglass planters. The planter measurement is fixed 720mm in length x 200mm in depth x 200mm in height sobe guided by this only the height alone can be bespoke.
  • Heights are taken from the height of the trough 200mm plus hedge height. So when you order your planters we can make to your desired height.
  • We offer affordable price tag and would like to reassure you that inexpensive instant hedging is not compromised by quality. Because we always aim to give great value for money - so please don't be concerned that our planters are not as good as more expensive instant hedging - we send progress update photographs of the actual troughs you would receive.


  • Our stone effect fibreglass planters which is light enough to make the troughs maneuverable and durable for long term outdoor display and uses.
  • All instant troughs will be in the best possible condition when they arrive with you.
  • We use a variety of plants in building trough depending on your preference as we know what will create the perfect hedge screening you want.
  • Quite a lot of instant hedging is "no UV" or in very low UV fade protection (not ours!). This means that the foliage colour is ok if it is against sun exposure for a period of time! Additionally there is also the risk that the "twigs" could fall off when it is stressed by being wind moved - our method of using raw polyethylene (not recycled) with UV protection agent added in during production process ensures no colour or leaf damage to instant hedging.
  • We use only high quality panels in our instant hedge troughs; it is this, along with our years of expertise in artificial products industry that gives us a fantastic customer services, top quality products and great prices!

Delivery & Installing

  • Instant hedging troughs can either be rigid plastic or heavy duty external wood troughs. We do both types but favour the GRP troughs because they make the stock lighter for you to move into the planting position.
  • We can also add some bricks when building the trough for extra weight if it is to go to a windy location. 
  • Installing instant hedging is very easy and efficient, because the planters are ready made for you. Just prepare your floor to the right level  and place the whole hedging unit out there. Done! No need watering or maintenance.
  • The evergreen new instant hedging is here to stay because they would not need to be replaced for years. Enjoy!
