Which hedging plant?
We have a 3ft brick wall facing on to a main road and would like some more privacy so want to grow a 6-7ft hedge next to it.
We're a corner property so i'll need to plant approx 10m of plants at a guess.
I'm very undecided on what plant to actually use. The three that have stood out to me so far are:
Privet: Cheap, solid and popular by all accounts?
Beech: Cheap again, colour change in the autumn appeals to me.
Portugese laurel: Proper evergreen, more expensive than the other two?
My requirements are pretty basic:
Looks good at about 6-7ft when grown, will give privacy all year... that's about it! I don't mind about maintenance as i'm out in the garden quite a lot.
Could you guys suggest which of the above would work best for me or recommend any other plant?
