Hi, I wonder if anyone could advise me please. I've recently moved and after removing the 15 or so huge conifers at the bottom of the garden would like something to replace and give some privacy back. I was thinking something similar to the attached with a wider raised bed and some laurel trees to block the top windows of the houses.
We are on quite a slope, a 6 foot fence will screen the sheds and lower windows of the houses. I then wanted something to screen the top without blocking all their light.
I'm wanting privacy as soon as possible and have seen 6 /7 foot laurel trees which in a raised planter wouod guve some screening quickly. At around £250 - £300 each very expensive though and I don't want to waste money.
Any thoughts appreciated as I'm a novice to gardening. Many thanks
