Hedgeing plants

Hi can you plant hedge plants next to a small wall the hedgr plants will grow to about 4 to 6 ft


  • Yes, provided they get enough moisture where they are for them to get established. If their root run can find space, for example away to the sides, then they'll be fine. As with any planting, ground preparation is important.  Be aware of the footings to the wall - they may extend outwards for several inches and that will make for very good drainage up close to the wall and may limit the planting space. 


  • Would that make the wall fall down with hedge plants next to the wall

    If the wall is in good repair then it will be fine.

  • Yeah the wall is fine no movement in the wall at all

  • What sort of plants are you after? Evergreen, deciduous?

    Leylandii are far too fast growing for a 4-6' hedge. Choose something less vigorous.
