What would grow in dying leylandi



They'll look awful whatever you persuade to grow over them, you'll always see the dead. Get 'em out..

Yes I agree, I don't hate them like some people do but I'm not keen on dead ones! The soil will be poor and full of roots so you would have trouble getting things established and flourishing immediately in front of them. Good luck, sounds like a difficult job whatever you decide to do!
