With its blazing red new foliage in spring and summer and rich, glossy leaves, Photinia Red Robin is a superb choice of evergreen hedging that provides interest in the garden all year round.
This is a fine example of Leylandii hedging from Richmond in South London. It is a lovely shade of deep green in colour. It is a well-kept hedge. You can see how beautiful and lush the foliage looks, with a nice, geometric rectangular shape and good depth. At a height of approximately 8 to 9 feet, this hedge is not overly difficult to trim and maintain, requiring no more than pair of ladders and a shears. In return, this Leylandii hedge offers a living green wall for the privacy for the residents while its dense interior provides shelter for wildlife such as small birds.
Provided you keep it in shape by trimming 2 to 3 times a year, a Leylandii hedge is an ideal evergreen screen if you need a hedge fast. The important thing to remember about Leylandii hedging is that it must be maintained. Leylandii (Leyland Cypress or its full Latin name Cupressus Leylandii) are very fast growing evergreen conifers. While their rapid growth means they will form a dense hedge very quickly, the corollary is that they must be kept trimmed so as not to get out of hand.
Pruning your Leylandii hedge
Pruning should be done about 2 to 3 times per year to the top and sides. This is best done in the growing season (generally March to August). As you can see, this hedge is due another little trim round about spring. Remember to always check for bird’s nests before pruning.
Leylandii trees are not overly fussy about soil type and will grow in a wide variety of soils from sand to clay and will even grow in areas where the soil is poor. They are wind and salt tolerant and will also grow well in exposed windy / coastal areas.
Planting Leylandii Hedging
Leylandii should ideally be planted 70 cm to 1 metre apart. The closer you plant them, the more quickly they fill out to form a dense hedge.
