Anne McGeough asked 8 years ago
I need a fast growing, hardy, evergreen screening hedge for a location in county Monaghan, very frosty in the winter time. Space is not a problem. I have considered Leylandii but would prefer something that would stop growing at approx 25-30 feet high. I’m in my sixties so fast growing is important . Is there a hardy alternative to Leylandii?

Holly is the best bet or Scots’ pine if there is plenty of space, or a mixture of the two as the pine will top up eventually and the holly can fill the area around the pine trunks, and you will leave a legacy of pine for future generations.
