Which Fence is Better, Hedge or Stone?

Hedge fence vs stone fence, which is better?

Do you have a barrier in your landscape where you would want to differentiate between two different spaces? Or would you want a fixture to highlight some spaces?

One of the best ways to do this is to plant hedge fences. There is also an option to use stone fences. For a detailed request on what could suit your needs more, contact us and we will give our recommendation.

Both hedge fences and stone fences can be an extremely good outline of your garden, whether you want it for aesthetic purposes, or for some privacy or security, they can both do the job.

Although hedge fences are cheaper to initially set up, they can have some extra costs in the long run as they are a plant and can whither away or be easily damaged.

In comparison, stone fences are more expensive to set up, but are much more durable and will last for longer with less maintenance.

When setting up your dream fence, you can even combine both stone and hedge fences, just like how you see in the picture above. This creates a great aesthetic that really highlights the look of both types of fences.

Hedge Fences –


  • Initially cheap to set up
  • Looks great
  • Provides shade
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Blocks out noise and dust
  • Provides privacy


  • May require a permit
  • Takes a long while for the hedge to grow
  • Relatively high maintenance

Stone Fences –


  • Durable, will last
  • Looks great
  • None-low maintenance
  • Materials are easy to obtain
  • Provides privacy


  • They cannot be altered easily once it is up
  • Takes a while to build
  • High initial cost

In conclusion, both fences both have their fair share of pros and cons, and it comes down to preference in the most part. However, if you don’t mind maintaining a hedge fence, we recommend to get one due to the aesthetic and low cost.
