About Leylandii Hedge Plants

Leylandii hedging is one of the most versatile hedging species available. They will grow successfully in all soil types including clay and chalk soils, making them ideal for UK soil. Leylandii hedges are suitable for both sheltered and exposed conditions, as they have extremely strong root systems but also fair extremely well with wind and sunlight exposure. Subsequently, leylandii hedges (cupressocyparis leylandii) are a good choice for coastal gardens too.

Many gardeners opt for Leylandii hedge plants not only due to its fast-growing nature but also its ease of maintenance and budget-friendly price. Cupressocyparis leylandii is widely available since it grows in so many different types of soil and environments.

At Hopes Grove Nurseries, we sell Leylandii hedging conifers grown in pots. This minimises root disturbance, and you can expect a 100% success in establishing your new leylandii hedge with no more than basic aftercare. We aim to minimise wastage whilst maintaining high levels of success for our plants. Some nurseries sell field-grown rootball Leylandii hedge plants which can give satisfactory results if the weather is kind but can establish poorly in harsh conditions.

How to Plant Leylandii Hedges

Leylandii hedge (cupressocyparis leylandii) is extremely adaptable, but also easy to maintain. However, there are a few planting tips that can be extremely useful for gardeners.

Because Leylandii hedges are very fast growing, crooked plants that have been blown around can be VERY heavy and hard to get straight again when they have grown! A little time spent monitoring/straightening the new hedge when it is young will go a very long way. 

Homeowners regularly use cupressocyparis leylandii as a privacy hedge, screening and windproofing, and are also a great way to reduce traffic sounds and noise pollution. The distance apart you choose to plant your hedges will greatly depend on your budget, how many you use, and how quickly you’d like a hedge to establish. Plants closer together will come together to form a hedge quicker.
