Green Leylandii (Cupressocyparis Leylandii) is a well-known, very fast-growing conifer. Its hedges can grow extremely dense when trimmed correctly, making them a popular choice for both windbreaks, and reducers of noise pollution. They also make great privacy hedges for those looking for more security.
How do you maintain Leylandii?
- Only trim your Leylandii hedge once a year.
- Don’t cut your hedge back too hard, just to the same point each year, leaving 4 inches (10cm) of green growth on the hedge.
- Trim your hedge in spring or summer, not late autumn.
