gap in boundary hedge

Andrew O\’Sullivan asked 11 years ago
Need to fill gap in boundary hedging – 25 Metres long with tall trees at each end of gap. Although majority of boundary has whitethorn growing wild, I would like to have a more formal, thick, fast growing hedge in this section, with a minimum height, over time, of 2 metres.On my side of boundary the hedge faces South and there is a natural stream running parallel to the hedge, at that location, approx 3 metres from stream.

Whitethorn or hawthorn is still probably the best choice, or yew which is evergreen but poisonous to grazing animals that might have access to it. Beech could be managed at the height you require, or natural green holly is probably the best choice here.
