Planting a 7ft Leylandii hedge is a faster option to achieving that all important eye level-privacy relatively instantly and these leylandii hedge plants are all between 7ft and 8ft (210-240cm) and have been clipped once to ensure that they will create a dense hedge after planting.
Leylandii are a fast growing evergreen and these plants will put on 2-3ft (60-90cm) each year if left untrimmed and so it will not take long for these plants to produce a Leylandii hedge at the required height to give eye level privacy.
Once the plants have reached their desired height, we recommend that it be trimmed at that height which will both encourage side growth and restrict upward growth to a manageable amount. A leylandii hedge needs to be trimmed annually in the spring or autumn.
Any leylandii hedge plants should be planted 2ft (60cm) apart (as shown in the photograph) and if they are planted during the drier summer months, they must be properly watered in their first year to ensure that they establish properly. This is best done using leaky hose which is cheap, easy to install and very effective.
