Hornbeam Hedging Question

Hi all,

I am planning to put a Hornbeam hedge round the perimeter of my back garden as it is against an old fence I want it to grow about 8 feet high to give me some privacy.  The ground is very heavy wet clay so I think this species is the best option.

My big question is should I plant a single row or a double staggered row?

    Double staggered is best and will give a good result.  Do not plant too near to the fence, you will want to get round the back of it.
