Evergreen Hedge



  • Hi John I too think privet is a good border hedge its easy to trim and good in all
    positions. Around my property I have Cotoneaster which is slower growing but has
    red berries in winter and pink flowers in summer. It is positioned south facing and on
    clay soil. I also live on a corner plot in Derbyshire and suffer chilled wind in Winter.
    I would reccomend not going for high hedges as it would not suit your house at all,
    I say that looking at some of your neighbours front gardens. Good luck whatever you
    decide on and do not worry about clay soil.
  • I would avoid anything fast growing. You may get instant gratification, but you will need to do a lot of work to keep it under control for ever afterwards. It is worth being patient.

    that looks like a new build, i'd check your deeds as sometimes they have written that they can be no boundary along footpaths for a certain period of time after building, new build companies can be a bit stupid at times
