I have a long garden and want to section a part into an intimate garden room so I wish to plant a thick fast growing hedge 8′ to 10′ high. Would you recommend Lawson’s Cypress?

Firstly, it is very uinlikely that you need to have the hedge that tall, as it will tend to dominate the garden area enclosed. Clipping will be much more difficult too.

Beech is good and yew makes an excellent dark green hedge. Lawsons cypress is not a good long term choice as it gets too broad and tends to go bare low down.
