Hi everyone I am new here and and have virtually no experience in the gardening world, although I am keen to learn! Ok, so we have bought a house that is on a fairly busy road, it has a low hedge at the front and I am keen to put something higher in that will give the house more privacy. I have a grass verge in front of the house and then my hedge which is around 5ft and I’m thinking of replacing the hedge with a five foot fence with a hedge above. I need it to look nice and hide the house? What would I plant (I was thinking Laurel) or would just conifers be better? I need to get around 7-8ft in total height and don’t want to wait years?
It might be 5ft now but it could be a fast grower.
I assume the grass verge isn't yours?
It's too nice to replace with a boring fence and there usually are height restrictions so best to check with the council
