Reducing the Noise from Road
First post here so I really hope someone can help.
We're looking at buying a house where the garden backs on to a busy main road. Currently, there is a wall with top half being wooden fence between the garden and the footpath that goes along the road, however, when viewing the house, this appeared to be totally inadequate.
I've read that planting a dense hedge of treas, etc, will help, but the garden's not really big enough to accommodate that, so I was just wondering if anyone could advise a possible solution?
