London, United Kingdom
I have a 12ft leylandii hedge growing in front of my flat at the top of a crazy paving slope. In am in a garden flat accessed down steps to the side of the slope.
My living room window looks out to the slope and the base of the leylandii hedge.
The slope is in shade in the morning and receives sunlight late afternoon.
I have a bamboo in a half barrel just outside my window to hide the hedge and started growing Boston Ivy in the same barrel to cover the slope. Any suggestions for other plantings, including below and up the Leylandii? Anything to hide the monstrosity.
Long story, but there is a campaign afoot to remove the hedge and I've suggested bamboo as a replacement. Any other suggestions would be welcome. The need is for instant screening at about the same height.
Thanks in advance.
