Hedging/Trees for Boundry

NOEL MOLLOY asked 11 years ago
Can you recommend a hedging /trees for a boundry. I already have golden leylandi around some of the boundry which goes around the house. There is a piece of land behind where our percolation area is. The general area is marshy so can you recommend something that likes the wet.

You cannot plant trees on a percolation area or close to a percolation area in case the tree roots get into the percolation pipes and cause blockage.

But it would not be a great percolation area in any case if it is marshy.

Alder is a very good choice for marshy ground, best left to grow and not pruned but they can be, if necessary.
