Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape is a compilation album by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree (at that time a pseudonym for private solo projects by Steven Wilson but later a fully fledged band in its own right). It is a compilation of the band's initial three tapes, Tarquin's Seaweed Farm, Love, Death & Mussolini and The Nostalgia Factory. It consists of the rest of the music from the tapes that was not included in the band's first studio album On the Sunday of Life....

The album was first released in 1994 as a limited run of 2500 copies in CD. (Counterfeits of this CD are in circulation, so buyers are warned to take extra care before paying high prices.)

In 2000, Gates of Dawn re-released the album as a double LP edition pressed on yellow vinyl, limited to 1000 copies, and on black vinyl up to 150 copies. 300 extra copies were pressed on green vinyl in 2005. Note that the vinyl version omits Steven's cover of Prince's song "The Cross", replacing it with the song "Out", from the Love, Death & Mussolini cassette.

In May 2013, a reissue of Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape became available to purchase exclusively through the Headphone Dust online store. It uses the vinyl track list.

The main melodic motif from "Mute" was reused in Wilson's other main project at the time, No-Man, for the song "Days in the Trees."
