The hedging’s foliage is very dense, making Leylandii an excellent choice if you are looking some noise reduction in your garden, from traffic for example. The density of the leaves helps make this hedging ideal for both privacy and wind protection also. Leylandii is almost guaranteed to grow wherever you live, due to it being suitable for both normal and clay soils, it can thrive in both fully sunned areas and fully shaded areas in coastal, inland or exposed sites, so it is a great option for all customers.
The Leylandii (if preferred) will grow very high, whilst being trimmed 1-2 times a year to ensure it will grow back successfully, because it is important to note that the hedging will not grow if it is on old wood. If you are looking for a hedge that can be cut back into old wood, we recommend the Western Red Cedar or to have a look through our many evergreen hedges that make great alternatives. In one year, the Leylandii will grow from 70cm – 90cm, depending on factors like watering and nutrients, placing it into the “rapid growing hedge” category.
Our Leylandii is available in from 15cm tall to 200 cm tall, meaning you have the choice to grow the hedging affordably or receive it fully-grown to instantly reap the benefits of the hedge’s privacy and pleasant scent.
The recommended planting density varies depending on the height of Leylandii you buy. For example:
Small – 15cm-90cm it is recommended that you plant 3-4 per metre
Medium – 90cm-160cm it is recommended that you plant 3 per metre
Large – 160cm-200cm it is recommended that you plant only 2 per metre
