Is this a Box Hedge?


Hello lovely folks of Gardeners World,

i am soon embarking on a project to redo my driveway, and will be planting a screening hedge where the drive will face the road.

i have seen a few neighbour's with the attached hedge and it looks very nice, and wondered if anyone knew the official name? I am wondering if it's an unclipped Box hedge? But I know nothing of plants so forgive me if it's a silly question ????

Many thanks in advance!

    Hi. Yes it is Box. I personally wouldn't plant a lot of Box as Blight is becoming increasingly prevalent in the UK.  We got Box Caterpillar here for the first time last year. Another reason to perhaps think about an alternative plant.
