Total newb to gardening, in need of hedge advice
Hi all, I’m in need of some hedge advice.
I’m in an end terrace house and have a very small space at the back which is overlooked at all angles but I do have a bit of a side garden which has a small 2ft wall going along 1 side, adjacent to a road.
I’d like to plant a hedge along 2 sides (around 15 metres) to give me some privacy, the garden isn’t big but it would be enough for me to be able to sit outside in the summer, at the moment I have no privacy at all.
Ideally the hedge would have to be kept quite narrow as not to eat up too much of the garden but be able to reach a height of around 6ft fairly quickly
Can someone tell me what variety would be best?
Also, I read somewhere that erecting a high fence is not allowed in the front but hedges are normally exempt, is this correct?
I’m a total newb to the world of gardening so any advice you could spare will be greatly appreciated.
