Hedging for screening

Anne McGrath asked 7 years ago

I’m wondering what the best hedge would be for screening? I’ve been thinking of Laurels, but believe they’re an invasive species? I’m looking for something affordable and hardy & evergreen. In addition, I want to get this done ASAP so something that can be planted year round (or late Spring). It’s for a border area of approx 5ft depth.

Laurel is a perfectly good hedge and only invasive in woodland, or the Portugese laurel with smaller leaves might suit.

Plant in spring if possible.
