Hi, we need some advice on which type of plant to use to block the view into the neighbours yards. We want to get a hedge (or multiple small trees?) put along one side of our house, and there is 2.3m between the house and the existing fence line. We are living near Warkworth (north of Auckland) and have clay soil that has a lot of worms in it. We’re also near the bottom of a hill so the clay soil is pretty damp as we get all of the rain runoff from multiple directions. Can we get some advice as to which plants would work best in this situation and for the small space that we have? Thanks.

Hi Tahlia, The run off of water would be one main concern especially in the winter months, so you would need to ensure that the plants are not waterlogged for a period of time, this can be achieved by planting “on top of” the existing soil. The soil itself isn’t a problem the worm activity is a good indication that the soil is good and maybe not so waterlogged (especially if this is the case right now) a couple of plants that spring to mind are Lilly Pilly and Griselina, both can be trimmed easily and kept to a specific height, and are both very hardy.
