Conifers have gone - What next?
I have just had four large conifers cut down at the rear of my garden. This has brought a lot more light and space into the garden but as you can see below there is now a privacy issue.
The space is south facing and there is a mature honeysuckle and jasmine against the fence, there is also ivy. My soil is neutral and fairly free draining.
The question is do I grow a new fairly thin hedge that can be kept to a sensible height.
Do I plant a specimen tree to give privacy in the summer, I was thinking of a silver birch one of the smaller varieties that grow to about 20 feet or so in ten years.
or is their another solution.
