How does one make a decent hedge row in OO?

A search on the Forum didn't turn anything up. I want to recreate a bit of this
iconic view of rural Britain. I recall seeing much the same whilst taking my
lunch upon a dining coach in about '67. Even as a lad of 6, the beauty of
the view was not lost upon me. Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, I recall.
I serve it every Christmas. Everyone loves it.

Now and then I take out a second mortgage and do a leg of mutton with
roast potatoes and mint sauce. That get's rave reviews, as well.

Rubberised horse hair. Cut into strips, tease out the strands, spray grey/black. Brush on PVA and sprinkle with scatter materials.
I’m not a complete idiot, some pieces are missing. ;)

Cut up pan scrubbers. Add a bit of flock/scatter.

The hedge DIY was very useful. Coconut fiber looks
excellent. Layering of textures very clever.
