Lavender has a distinct smell with a color to beautify any garden. It is also a working plant that can be used in cooking and creating various things. The bees love it and so will pollinate your vegetable garden when they come to the lavender. The flower stands out in the garden and can make wonderful hedges, which breaks the wind flowing through. This can prevent soil drying out, wind eroding, and crops losing its stance in the stems. Hedges can also stop rain taking out the soil and eroding its level also.
For lavender growth, choose a type works with the settings climate. When choosing one that helps make a hedge, consider those that grow at from 3 to 4 feet.

For folks that would like a shorter hedge you can plant lavender that will grow to around 30 to 36 inches. Like in the picture a mix of white and purple is very striking. You can buy purple lavender here and white lavender here. .
