    bush?

    Hello,

    This is not as tall as to reach an adult's waist. Is this artificially trimmed plant placed closely together with each other in order to form a partition called bush, or is there a term for it?

    Thanks.

    In AmE we call a row of shrubs or small trees that are planted close to each other in order to form a boundary a hedge.

    It's also a "hedge" in BrE. Note that we also use the word "hedgerow" but that consists of wild bushes (and sometimes trees) along the side of a field or a lane/road.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
