What to do.
25 years ago we unfortunately planted leylandii as property border edging at a cost of less than £100 for all the plants.
Since then what with hedge cutting, waste removal and repairing part of a drive due to root heave, we are probably looking at at least 2k over the years!
The trees are around 7 feet tall and have now reached the end of their lives as they are dying back.
The obvious problem we have is that we will be severely overlooked once the trees are removed and want to get some sort of privacy other than 6 foot interwoven panels as cosmetically they are not ideal.
overall the total length of hedging front and rear is aound125 feet.
Has anyone any suggestions, it would be great if some 5-6feet laurel or privet etc was available that could provide instant cover to an extent.
Hope someone can help, thanks in anticipation.
