Advice Please: Hedging Plant
Berkshire, United Kingdom
I would be grateful if someone could advise on a good hedging plant that I might use for screening. I understand that a neighbour is about to park a large motorhome (approx 12 feet tall) immediately next to the boundary to the front of my house. In order to provide privacy and to lessen the visual intrusion, I would like to plant a hedge row.
The hedge row would need to be evergreen and dense, and would need to be able to grow to a height of approx 10 to 12 feet tall. The hedge row would be close to our own house so I would be keen to maintain it regularly in order to keep it looking trim - and no wider than approx 3½ feet. The front of the house is north facing, and some of the site is in shade for much of the time.
My reading suggests that possibly my best option would be a laurel hedge of some description. Would anyone (with more experience of these things than I have!) be able to advise if this is the case - or if there are alternatives I should consider?
Many thanks in advance.
