Ilex aquifolium Nellie R Stevens (Holly Nellie R Stevens)

Ideal for screening due to its symmetrical habit, density and lack of pruning requirements. The glossy green leaves are smooth rather than spikey. The autumn berries provide colour and food for birds. Grows well in well-drained soil, is drought tolerant, needs sun-partial sun.

Ilex castaneifolia (Sweet Chestnut Holly)

This tree has a distinctively pyramidal shaped crown, with large, thick green leaves which are marginally spiky at the edges. Like many other Hollies, this tree is tolerant of shade and will thrive on most soils, providing they are well drained.

Ligustrum japonicum (Japanese Privet)

A compact, small sized evergreen tree with camellia-like olive-green leaves. It bears large clusters of  white flowers in late summer. A tough performing species that will thrive on most soils, but avoid waterlogged areas.

Ligustrum japonicum (Japanese Privet)

A compact, small sized evergreen tree with camellia-like olive-green leaves. It bears large clusters of white flowers in late summer. A tough performing species that will thrive on most soils, but avoid wa-terlogged areas.

Magnolia grandiflora Gallisoniensis

With large dark green leaves, this evergreen produces beautiful, large, white flowers in the summer, which can be up to 25 cm in diameter. As well as decorating this stunning tree they also create a sweet-citrus smelling aroma. Grows well in most soils, must be sheltered and not north-facing.

Osmanthus aquifolium – Holly Olive

A small multi-stemmed tree with sharply serrated, deep green, glossy leaves.  Fragrant white flowers appear in autumn amongst the leaves and branches. Slow growing and hardy down to -15c, preferring a sheltered position.

Osmanthus armathus – Devilwood

The oval crown gives privacy, and the glossy leaves and fragrant white autumn flowers gives year round interest. It thrives on free draining soils but may lose leaves in the severest of winters so it is best grown in a sunny aspect with protection against biting winter winds.

Eriobotrya japonica (Loquat Tree)

With its distinctive large evergreen leaves, this tree grows to a broad rounded shape.  It produces small, white petals with white leaves that last from winter through to spring. Thrives in full sun or partial shade, with well-drained soil. Choose a sheltered spot to avoid wind damage to the leaves.

Photinia Red Robin

This tree is a popular and versatile evergreen; it makes a fine tree with a rounded growth habit which responds well to pruning. The Red Robin’s stand out feature is the vibrant red new shoots in spring, which contrast with the white blossom – unusual in an evergreen. The bright new leaves change to a deep, glossy green as they mature and are complemented with small round red berries in the summer.

Prunus laurocerasus Novita (Cherry Laurel)

With its dense, dark leaves, the Novita is useful as screening tree. It also makes a fine stand-alone tree, growing with an upright, broad habit. It has fresh green leaves on foliation, which get darker and glossier with age. In May, mature trees produce a display of white blossom, which grow on upright racemes.

Pleached trees can create effective screening or simply to improve privacy in your garden, without taking up very much space due to their slim canopy.  Pleached trees are created by training trees to a square frame, tying in and interlacing flexible young shoots along a supporting framework, creating an attractive slender tree.

 

Cupressocyparis leylandii

Commonly referred to as Leylandii, this is a very large and extremely vigorous species hybrid. Valued for its fast growth habit and dense, this evergreen tree provides an effective screen. Usually used in open spaces or as a windbreak, Leylandii can also be used effectively for screening in smaller spaces, such as these pleached trees but it must be regularly maintained and clipped to ensure it is contained for shape and space.

 

Elaeagnus ebbingei

Pleached Elaeagnus is an outstanding hardy evergreen with tough silvery grey leaves that are frost, wind and salt resistant. Elaeagnus is highly regarded for its sweet fragrance and tiny bell-shaped white flowers in late summer, followed by small orange berries in the winter. A species which positively thrives in coastal environments and all soil types, this makes an attractive pleached tree.

 

Ilex Nellie R Stevens (Holly)

Ideal for screening due to its symmetrical habit, density and lack of pruning requirements. The glossy green leaves are smooth rather than spikey. The autumn berries provide colour and food for birds. Grows well in well-drained soil, is drought tolerant, needs sun-partial sun.

A compact, small sized evergreen tree with camellia-like olive-green leaves that looks attractive in pleached form. It bears large clusters of white flowers in late summer. A tough performing species that will thrive on most soils, but avoid waterlogged areas.

 

Magnolia Grandiflora

With large dark green leaves, this evergreen produces beautiful, large, white flowers in the summer, which can be up to 25 cm in diameter. As well as decorating this stunning tree, they also create a sweet-citrus smelling aroma, and makes a stunning pleached tree. Magnolia grows well in most soils, but it must be sheltered and not north-facing.

 

Photinia fraseri ‘Red Robin’

This is a versatile evergreen, that has vibrant red new shoots in spring, which contrast with the white blossom – unusual in an evergreen.  The bright new leaves change to a deep, glossy green as they mature. This tree is a colourful pleached tree.

 

Viburnum lucidum

Creating Privacy with Screening Trees

Screening Trees

Prunus laurocerasus Novita`

Privacy in your garden can be created using trees to hide or screen out an undesirable view; they can also be used to draw the eye to a specific feature.

Trees grown for this purpose often have a clear stem i.e. no leaves on the lower trunk; they reach up to fence panel height of around 1.8-2m with a full bushy canopy above, forming a good screen above the fence line. This type of screening is particularly useful if you are overlooked by neighbouring properties or would like to retain lower level exposure to an attractive wall or area.  Screening trees can be designed to create a focus point, perhaps to make the most of a feature.

 

Type of Privacy

It is a good idea to consider what you are aiming to screen out. For example are you directly overlooked by a neighbouring property, or would you like to filter out a large building or structure? Also consider the angle you are viewing from, as this may help choosing the right tree for your needs.

Practicality Brown’s semi-mature trees can be planted to achieve effective screening from the offset with evergreens being preferred for this purpose as they screen throughout the year.  However, a planting scheme that includes deciduous trees can provide rich contrast and seasonal interest.

 

Cherry Laurel

Prunus laurocerasus Novita close up

Prunus laurocerasus Novita, a dense evergreen tree, is popularly used for screening due to its upright and bushy habit and its

resilience to cold weather. In April small, fragrant, white flowers grow in vertical racemes about 12cm long which are followed by small glossy, black fruit.

We have semi-mature containerised Prunus laurocerasus Novita with a 1.8m clear-stem, available now.

The Cherry Laurel grows well in most soil and conditions, preferring moist slightly acidic soil.  Pruning in late spring to helps to retain its shape and encourages new growth.  If planting in a row, the optimum distance for the clear stem is with 1.2-1.5m spacing.

Trees from Practicality Brown

We can supply a range of top quality trees for decorative or screening, which are particularly useful to create privacy in your garden.   These include feathered trees that have full growth from the ground upwards and offer the same screening ability.  A mix planting of evergreen and deciduous trees, if space allows, can be an attractive solution.

We also have a range of pleached trees which can be used in the same way; pleached trees can be effective for a formal screen and where space is limited.
