Whether you’re buying a new home in a popular suburb of the Sunshine Coast or simply wanting to escape to your own natural oasis, hedging plants are the best way to enhance your living space.
Growing plants from scratch can be a time consuming and frustrating process that requires copious amounts of your attention.

We take the grunt work and guessing game out of your garden planning with our range of hedging and screening plants.
Not all shrubs are created equally, and they are not all manufactured for privacy or the salty soils of the Sunshine Coast. Our fast-growing hedging plants are ready to go from the day that they’re installed in your garden, providing the screen, windbreak and beautiful aesthetic that you’ve been looking for.
Choose Lilly Pilly Hedges for Your Privacy Screen
Hedging and Screening is a family-orientated and local business based out of the Sunshine Coast. Before we sold privacy hedges, we worked many years servicing gardens within and beyond Queensland.
As we planted, we noticed a need for natural and fast-growing screening bushes for Australian homes. The screening available was often lacking the height and density that is needed for true noise-dampening, privacy and shade. Our passion for horticulture led us to the Glass House Mountains where the lush sunlight produces strong and healthy hedge bushes. This resulted in a coming together of like-minded horticulture professionals who began growing a range of hardy, flowering, fast-growing and climate suitable hedges and natural screens to offer to homeowners across Australia.
Now, there is no need to wait to get the privacy and comfort that you’re longing for in your garden, thanks to our direct delivery of top quality, lush and beautiful screen plants. The warm climate, clean air and high humidity of the Glass House Mountains provides a perfect home base for our screening and hedge plants, giving them a great starting point for a long life of glossy, green leaves and dense foliage.
The Best Hedge Varieties for the Sunshine Coast
Our hedges are developed to withstand the unique weather conditions in the Sunshine Coast, whether they’re positioned in full sun or part shade. It is well known among the horticulture community that few plants surpass the Lilly Pilly variety of plants for the Sunny Coast’s hot summers and mild winters. This hardy shrub gives home-owners a beautiful privacy screen that is both full in its foliage density and height. In addition to the dense leaves provided by this shade plant, it produces both flowers and berries that are pleasing to look at.

Screening Plants for Sunshine Coast Summers
Australia has a climate unlike anywhere in the world, and we have dedicated our careers to understanding what makes Australian plants thrive. In the space of 12 months, Sunshine Coast homes can experience anything from drought to flood, and no matter where you are in the country – plants that are resilient to full sun are a must.
Because our plants begin their life in sunny Queensland, they are grown to blossom even in the most unpredictable conditions. We take the time and effort to grow your plants with profound care so that they are ready to do their job when they arrive on your lawn. Rest easy knowing that our screening plants will allow you to enjoy both shade from the Australia sun and privacy from your neighbours, the moment that they arrive.
Hedge Varieties that Grow Best in Sunshine Coast Soil
The Sunshine Coast is full of biodiversity and the soil stretching across this region allows for beautiful trees, plants, and animals to thrive. The salt content within your land’s soil will reflect your proximity to the beach. However, the ph balance and mineral content balances out as you move towards the Hinterland. Despite these small variations in the earth, many of our hedge plants will happily grow on your property.
Our Lilly Pilly range is accustomed to such conditions and is a species that can thrive even in areas with questionable soil. Once this plant is established in the soil, very little maintenance is required, and you’ll likely be surprised at its rate of growth, almost doubling in size within a year.
