    I love this beautiful landscape feature in
    cool shades of green and white. Great questions! Here's my thoughts

    Q. Are they planted inside the fence close
    to the fence so they peep out the other side?

    A. This looks like a variety that grows at
    least as tall as the fence so yes, branches would show on the other side of the
    fence. When choosing a hydrangea, note the mature height and width, then you'll
    know how much space is needed when you plant them.

    Q. Are they trimmed at the bottom area of
    the plant or do they just grow naturally with that space between the plant and
    the ground?

    A. Yes I would say these shrubs have been
    trimmed to remove the lower branches. The one in the picture may be a variety
    of Panicle hydrangea (H. Paniculata) which is suitable for a deciduous hedge.
    Different varieties require different pruning (trimming) it's not difficult,
    just do a little research or ask at your garden center when you purchase the

    In your
    picture, the shrubs are growing in a bed of soil next to the fence, this is
    great idea because the shrubs are not competing with lawn grass for water and
    nutrients. I recommend installing lawn edging between the lawn and the bed, http://www.yardproduct.com/  the lawn edging gives a nice, neat look and
    prevents grass and weeds from growing
    into the bed (example below).

    There are
    many different varieties of hydrangea, they vary in size from 3' to 20' tall,
    your best bet is to visit your local garden center and ask about hydrangeas
    that grow well in your area. Here's a few pictures to give you an idea:

    Hi Stephen, sorry for the delay - I didn't see your question til now. It's a vinyl fence but we didn't install it so I don't know the manufacturer.
