Laurels are renowned for their hardiness and density when considering using them as hedging plants. You can now plant a cherry laurel tree to block out overlooking neighbours!
Laurels are also used as a privacy tree, using its dense, rapid growing foliage to screen windows and other unsightly views from a garden. Laurels will thrive in nearly all conditions and can be planted a slightly larger spacings when compared to Photinia Red Robin or Ligustrum (Privet) trees due to their rapid growth rate. Cherry laurel trees can be bought with different stem height measurements to ensure they suit your desired planting area.
Grown as a screening tree, this traditional hedge plant has been grown into a standard tree – meaning less garden real estate has been consumed by your ‘hedge on legs’ as opposed to planting a tall laurel hedge. It is even possible to underplant your new laurel privacy hedge with shrubs to add more colour and seasonal interest in your garden. King and Co have a large range of laurel trees for sale at the Tree Nursery based in Rayne, Essex.
