Where the hedge used to be

Between my wild garden and our formal garden there used to be a hedge. One day I decided to take it out instead of trim it into shape. The idea was it plant it up with native grasses, flaxes and hebes, so that the two parts of the garden would merge together seamlessly.
My plan has worked and I think it looks brilliant. I love to watch the grasses as the breeze makes shadows and light through them. It is now possible to see the ferns and agapanthis which were hidden by the hedge.
