Replacement for Grisilia hedge

Kennedy asked 11 years ago

The Grisilinia hedge at the front of my house has succumbed completely to the weather (just like all the others in my area). I’m hoping to replace it with 6 or 7 shrubs. They’ll need to be tough, frost-hardy, decorative if possible, and I’ll need to keep them at about 4 feet high. The site is facing NNE, so it gets only the early morning sun and it can be quite windy. I’ll be planting inside a 3 foot high wall. Any recommendations please?

Kildare can be very cold and you were probably lucky the griselinia lasted so well. Holly, beech or yew would suit well.
