Hi

I have dug up and area of my garden which I plan to make into a patio/bbq area. I want to plant some Leylandii trees along a section dividing my garden from the neighbours to give a little extra privacy. I can see how many trees to plant over the length, but I can't find how wide to leave the border before laying the paving slabs.

Can anyone give advise or point me to a suitable link?

Regards

Better to use Laurels as the Leylandi can become a nuisance in the future. You can only trim back to where there is green needles as if you go beyond it will be brown and never recover. Laurels are tough and you can prune and shape them into a hedge and keep the height how you want.

Thanks for the reply DWD.

I think I may have to go with the Laurels. All the forums I have been on where people are asking advice regarding the Leylandii, everyone tells them not bother, there too much bother. I have a small laurel hedge in a different area of the garden anyway. Plus that will answer my question too as I can just work off the same size border where my existing Laurel is growing :cheers:
