Generally, a privacy hedge is created from dense tall evergreen shrubs and bushes that have no other purpose. However, some plants can serve more than one purpose which often comes in handy in limited spaces and small gardens. While the hedges on the ground create a definite border and some noise screening, the horizontal vines up top make use of the space by also providing an edible crop of fruit as well as some screening. Often forgotten or never considered, trellises, arbors, and vines make good use of otherwise wasted horizontal garden space.
