Cumbria, United Kingdom
We have inherited a 20 year old leylandi hedge which looks good on our neighbours side (they like the privacy) however our side looks like it has recently been cut back (we moved in a few months ago) - all the branches have been cut back and of course now it wont grow back. Our neighbours would like the hedge to remain. What is the possibility of planting new (and small as a mass of roots to plant between) leylandi plants in between the old ones to eventually grow up in amongst the other trees so I will be able to trim the new ones each year properly but cover up the bare branches of the other ones? Or are there any other solutions apart from cutting the whole thing down? Thanks in advance for the advice.
