Conifer/Juniper Recommendations

HanamiHanami Posts: 11

Hi there,

We've got a narrow border at the side of our driveway (approx 9 x 1m) which is next to our boundary fence with next door. Β My main priority is screening but I don't want to create a thick impenetrable hedge as I'd still need to loosely maintain the fence panels behind whatever I put in somehow.

I'd like something that tops out (or can be neatly kept) at about 6ft and is evergreen. Something relatively inexpensive so I can buy larger specimens for quicker screening. Hence my request for conifer/juniper suggestions. Unless anyone has got any other ideas? I like the formal look of cypress trees so a similar effect would be great.. Perhaps 5 or 7 in a row? I did look at Juniper Skyrocket and they looked perfect but would get too tall.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Hanami,

    The RHS has a quite good page discussing the selection of hedges - perhaps it might give a few ideas?

    Hope this helps.
