Is it possible to keep leylandii under control by cutting it twice a year? i have a half acre site with the boundary on average 35 ft away from my house? im afraid to put hedging in again because of the harsh winters.

Leyland cypress is a mistake for most gardens as it cannot be cut back beyond the green tissue whenit has grown too large, as it undoubtedly will.

Pruning twice a year, which is a waste of effort, will not change that.
