Hi Olivia,

Welcome.

That's a largish area to work on. Are you starting from scratch?

Hi guys, thanks for the welcome,

Sorry, that might read wrong, it's three quarters of an acre, not 3 to 4 acres, which I guess you both are thinking.

There are many 2ft beech planted to the south west perimeter, this never took off due the the wind bashing it takes.

I had planned to re-plan to the front the beech. Towards the back we have hedging, I just planned to take this up altogether.

towards the north perimeter we had a lot of laurel, which died due to the snow and freezing conditions
last winter. There are a few silver birch thrown in for good measure.
It's all a bit mish mash. I hope to put green giant around three sides with beech lining the wall on the road front.

O.
