Our neighbour is having the cut right down, my question is, does anyone know what I could use to cover ‘hide’ it ? It looks very unsightly and I thought some kind of windbreak but most aren’t tall enough

you could erect your own trees or fence.
if the neighbours are having them cut right down, why did they/you bother to do the shaving?
Question Author
I haven’t, they have
There’s already a trellis fence up on my decking , the trees were originally at least 15 metres higher than that so I’m wanting to cover where they’ve been cut into
save doing something that costs you money, why noy wait till they have them cut down and see what they look like then?

Sorry that should be 5 metres , I’ve ordered a green/ silver tarpaulin from Amazon , see if thar helps
Wonder why your neighbour felt the need to grow Laylandii trees to seperate you from them in the first place ?.
Tarpaulin will be more trouble than it's worth. I can't imagine that it will look any good either.

Tilly this is what it’s like now, my neighbour isn’t an an adjoining one , his garden is behind our decking and it’s terraced in large steps ( if you know what I mean ? )

where are you planning to screen?
If I understand your picture correctly...and I may not have as my specs are not to hand immediately...I would be putting tubs/large pots along the side of that fence and growing climbing plants up to those stubs of leylandi....pretty climbers and things like grape vines....(mine gave a good crop of grapes last year...after 2/3 years) then you have cover and the beginnings of a wine cellar. At least a tub each end and honey suckle one end and grapes the other .. for example!

Thank you Mally, great idea

Bednobs the whole of the cut wood
If you try to erect some sort of windbreak, it will blow away in the winter storms.

Perhaps grow a fast growing climber on it, though it will almost certainly be deciduous.

Thanks Hoppy
Hi Bobbi,
Clematis almandii, might do well there, it's a vigorous evergreen one.
Wonder what your neigbours would say if they saw the Pics you posted on here. Thats if they talk to you.
I doubt they'd think Bobbi needed photography advice.

I agree with the above, climbers would work well in that situation.
Don't pay a lot of money for climbers if your neighbour is going to cut down the remaining Leylandii.

Thanks Mamya and Chip,



actually it is my garden in the pic ( haha )

They’re down to around 5ft on their side which is the top of their terraced garden , it’s kinda difficult to explain that their garden Is behind out decking , their street is below ours
