This story was in a 1950s anthology of classic sci-fi stories. The aliens are friendly, and recommend planting a certain hedge, I think, to solve a problem. When the hedge becomes a problem, they recommend a solution that in turn creates a bigger problem, until ultimately the humans find the planet uninhabitable. (Lessons there about tinkering with the environment.)
