Pleached Photinia Screening Trees – Latest Planting

Our latest projects planting Pleached Photinia Red Robin evergreen pleached trees to create garden privacy. 

Pleached trees offer an instant screening effect as foliage has often been grown for several years to cover a typically 1.2m x 1.2m trellis frame. Similar to our other screening trees, pleached trees usually have a clear stem of 1.8m, meaning you have the privacy impact of a hedge, without taking up precious garden space. Importantly, Photinia is one of our evergreen pleached trees – which provides foliage all year round. This means garden privacy can still be achieved in the winter months.

Photinia Red Robin Evergreen pleached trees planted in a garden to screen above the fence line.

We recently planted seven Photinia to screen windows above the fence line, giving our customers time to plan their under-planting plan. This garden is no longer overlooked all year round given Photinia Red Robin is evergreen, with fresh red foliage emerging in the Spring – maturing to a deeper green.

These standard trees have a 1.8m clear stem with a dense head of foliage that has been trained onto a 1.2m x 1.2m sized framework, designed to sit above a standard 6ft fence panel in order to create a stilted hedge

The Tree Nursery in Rayne, Essex (less than an hour from London) is currently open for appointments. There are over 2000 products on site, meaning our sales team will be able to advise the more appropriate trees or plants to use in your garden. We can also conduct this over email, and are able to dispatch trees and plants next-day nationwide.

Pleached Holly Trees

Ilex castaneifolia (Chestnut leaf Holly) is another popular pleached tree. Ilex castaneifolia is a medium-sized evergreen tree with large green leaves and a conical habit. The leaves are unusually large for a holly with soft spines around the edge resembling the Sweet Chestnut leaves from which it gets the name. This is a female clone and if pollinated the small white flowers that emerge in the spring are followed by large red berries in the Autumn.
