Planting hedge next to 3ft brick wall


I'm planning on planting a beech hedge at the front of my property, it will be up against a 3ft high brick wall. I was wondering how close to the wall should I plant them? Also how much further should I remove the grass  from the non wall side?



  • One of the most frequent nuisances with hedges that people plant them too close to the property boundary and then the hedges grow out across pavements and footpaths. Have a walk round your area with a tape measure in your pocket and take some realistic measurements of the thicknesses of hedges that you want yours to be like. Then you can see where yours should be planted so that it's not a pain to the public.
