The hedge ratio is a measure of how closely the trees in your yard mesh with the garden you created around your yard. An equator hedge is the most closely matched to the surrounding trees, and should grow together; a ratio of 1:1:1 (50/20/20) is the best combination for optimal hedge growth.
This is why it is important to get your hedge ratio right. If your yard is too close to the house (you’ll get a hedge ratio of 1), the hedge will go wild and grow out of control. You’ll probably want to think about whether you want to keep the tree in the middle of the garden or if you want to make room for another tree.
I know what you’re thinking, “Hedge ratios are a way for people to talk about what they think is important for a hedge to grow.” To make that point you need to understand that different people in different situations have different ideas about what a good hedge ratio is. For example, a garden owner will tend to think that the more space they have in between the tree and the house, the bigger the hedge, and the less work it will take to grow it.
I don’t think that this specific hedge ratio is very important to most garden owners. A hedge is only as big as the space between the tree and the house, so if that space shrinks, so does the hedge. I would agree that there is a certain amount of space that is important, but that space is not necessary to grow a hedge large enough.
I think this is the most important thing to consider when deciding which hedge to grow. How you divide that space will depend on the size of your yard (and your budget), but the most important thing is to make sure you have enough space between your tree and your house that you can keep the hedge small enough to grow.
At this point in my life, I have become a believer in the theory that the bigger the hedge, the more space it takes up. This is probably because my yard is pretty small. In the meantime, here is another theory to consider: the smaller the hedge, the more space it takes up. If you have a hedge so small that you can only fit a tree between it and your house, that means you will have a lot of room to grow your hedge.
My family has an acre-plus lawn, and so that’s what I am currently keeping it. If I had to do it over again, I would keep the hedge larger and my lawn smaller. Of course, if I did that I would probably have to start watering it more.
In general, hedge ratio is the proportion of space taken up by hedges versus the size of the lawn. So if you have a lot of things to keep, you will probably want to keep the most important things for the most space possible.
So if you have a small lawn, you’ll probably want to keep your hedge smaller. If you have a big lawn, you’ll probably want to keep your hedge bigger.
