Is it a hedge or is it a fence?

I have spent a lot of time looking at hedges and  fences over the past year and whilst this would not have been suitable to replace the 50metres of leylandii hedge, I do like it!

    A fedge? It would have been a lot easier to build than a fence but it wouldn’t have blocked the veiw of the lorries!

    While I like the pattern created by the willow stems I worry about what happens in winter when there are no leaves on the twigs. Perhaps a hedge on Tsuga heterophylla would be worth a try for your Leylands replacement. Western Hemlock makes a good hedge and is capable of withstanding the frost and wind. There is a very good example at RBGE planted back in the 1960s I think. Worth a thought.

      Too late – we put a real fence. Come out and check it out sometime!

        But we are covering it. We already have apple trees, raspberries, loganberries, clematis and wisteria planted. Not sure how the wisteria will fare here at 220m!
