A hedge or hedgerow is a line of closely spaced shrubs and tree species, planted and trained to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area. Hedges used to separate a road from adjoining fields or one field from another, and of sufficient age to incorporate larger trees, are known as hedgerows. It is also a simple form of topiary.

Famous quotes containing the word hedge:

    Take the instant way,
    For honor travels in a strait so narrow,
    Where one but goes abreast. Keep then the path,
    For emulation hath a thousand sons
    That one by one pursue. If you give way,
    Or hedge aside from the direct forthright,
    Like to an entered tide, they all rush by
    And leave you hindmost.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Though bachelors be the strongest stakes, married men are the best binders, in the hedge of the commonwealth.
    Thomas Fuller (1608–1661)

    There’s such divinity doth hedge a king
    That treason can but peep to what it would,
    Acts little of his will.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
