How to disguise a hole in a hedge
We have a juniper hedge in our front lawn. One bush died and I tried to replace it with the same, but I (in my ignorance) bought the wrong variety, one that is more of a groundcover than a bush. The hedge faces full west and gets a lot of sun, except for the place where the bush died--it is directly under a dogwood is forever shaded.
Is there any way to work around this gap? Everyone says to replace the entire hedge, but no one here wants to do that. Is there any work around? This only needs to last 5 years, then we're outta here. The hole is about 3 feet wide.
