The fastest and lowest maintenance hedging is not to plant hedging at all … instead plant shelter belts and groups of trees at the boundaries and in the corners.

This will not only give you provacy, shelter and a lovely setting but will reduce the area for lawn mowing.
Use hazel, birch, holly, hawthorn.
