Fence or hedge for privacy
27 replies 569 views
My neighbours have recently removed their leylandii hedge. I know most people hate leylandii but it was really good for privacy. It was so thick it even seemed to give some sound-proofing from their 3 screaming kids. Now all we have between us is a, less then 4ft, fence. Their garden is very small and they use it all the time so every time I go outside I end up having to talk to them. When I’m in my kitchen, they’re staring straight in.
I’m not sure what to do. Would a tall fence or a hedge be best? Or both? I was thinking of a 6ft wooden fence. Would that seem very antisocial? What hedge would grow really quickly? (apart from more leylandii). Any ideas would be appreciated.
