Top 5 plants to screen out your neighbour

by .

Do you need to screen out a pesky neighbour? Well unfortunately many of us do and it is a request we constantly hear about.  So do not despair it can be done quite quickly by buying advanced trees for immediate screening and we recommend bag sizes of 75L and above in order to achieve that.  

To work out how many plants you will need, firstly measure the area you wish to plant out.  We recommend spacing every 80cm for a quicker forming screen or if you are happy to wait a little longer you can plant every 1.3m.  

Our TOP 5 plants to do the job:

1. CUPRESSOCYPARIS LEYLANDII 'LEIGHTON GREEN' - CONIFER

  • Very fast growing - up to 1m per year
  • Dense foliage making it perfect for screening and hedging
  • Reaches heights of around 10m so a little maintence is required to keep them to a manageable height if you dont want them quite that height.
  • Creates a great wind break
  • Perfect for creating privacy in pool areas
  • Create formal hedging by pruning or you can let it go for informal hedging
  • Perfect for large properties along fence lines
