What are fences and their characteristics

In case you are still not sure, a fence is a continuous row of bushes that aims to mark a limit on our land or serve as a wind curtain that protects our home from it.

When thinking about carrying out this natural wall, it is essential to make a forecast taking into account the characteristics of each species beyond its aesthetic appearance: if it will be green all year, if it is too high or low for what we need, what needs they have (irrigation, drainage, sun, etc.) or if at least they resist the environmental conditions that we provide, among many other things.
