Can anyone give me any ideas on planting bare-root trees in the Autumn
time that would grow tall (or could buy tall/fledged) that would be
perfect for creating privacy??
We have just had a load of Llandii taken down that have grown tall,
which blocked out the house overlooking our garden for privacy and also
now let the light into our garden
We are now looking for something similar (not so thick as Llandii) that
would create privacy but also block the windows that now seem to be
peering into our garden and back of the house!
Would tree's like Ash be ok? do they grow tall for privacy?
Thanks for any advice
Where are you?
Ash is too slow growing, are large deciduous trees, and don't do well
growning close together... planting bare root ash you wouldn't live
long enough to see any summer privacy even if you have the acreage to
plant several rows.
One of the best screening trees is Canadian Hemlock.
Thuja Green Giant is a fairly fast growing evergreen hybrid that makes
a good screen. But a lot depends on your specific location and growing

We are in Notts UK, and have a large house, come hotel at the end of our
garden, so anything that creates a screen but also lets a little
sunlight in..? (at the end of the day as it will be west facing)
I think you mean you are in the middle interior of England, your lot
runs east-west, and your west neighbor is a large house cum hotel?
So how tall does the vegetation need to be to screen out the neighbor?
The neighbor's windows, to be exact. That's the target height you want,
yes? As the neighbor is there year round, you want an evergreen, yes?
Too bad you took out the Leylandii; you could have cut them back. Did
you pull out the stumps?
