Take a look at this rather lovely cherry laurel hedge, framing a north-facing wall in this courtyard. Not only does it provide a luscious evergreen screen (from the concrete wall behind), it looks good all year round, with its shapely evergreen leaves in a very attractive mid green with the new growth appearing a vibrant brighter green. As you can see, there is nothing at all woody about this hedge. Indeed, that’s the beauty of cherry laurel hedging – you can cut it as hard back as you like and it will always respond excellently.

This cherry laurel hedge (Latin name Prunus Laurocerasus) has reached a substantial height of about 13 feet or so giving great privacy. It will probably be kept a this height – but they can grow even taller if required, say to 15 feet or even 20 feet for a truly impressive screen.
Easy to maintain:
As you can see from the pictures, this particular cherry laurel hedge is in need of a light trim. Surprising as it may sound, this only needs to be done once per year. Then once clipped, the hedge takes on a wonderful geometric aspect, further enhancing the garden architecture.
Cherry Laurel hedging, because of its denseness and the impressive heights it reaches if allowed, can be extremely useful for creating separate rooms in your outside space. For example, use cherry laurel hedging to separate the lawn or the flower garden from the vegetable patch by creating a lovely wall of green. Because they lend themselves so well to pruning, you can get creative as the hedge matures and cut enchanting archways or doorways though the hedge (which should be self-supporting due to the denseness of the hedge) gently enticing the visitor from one ‘room’ to the next.
It’s also nice to that know that the thick network of inner branches and evergreen foliage provide terrific shelter for wildlife, particularly for those birds that don’t desert us in the winter months.
Settling In – Once planted, just keep well watered for the first couple of growing seasons until the plants get established.
Trimming Tip – When trimming, it’s best to cut the branches and avoid cutting the leaves.
