We inherited Leylandi at the bottom of our garden. I can understand why the previous owners planted them - they act as a screen between our property and the one behind us. However, we maintain our side on a periodic basis but they're becoming unmanageable the other side of our fence.
Legally they belong to us so we'd like to remove and replace with a suitable plant "screen" which is manageable, maintains it's green leaves all year round and does not become a nuisance.
Can anyone suggest the best way to remove the Leylandi and a recommended replacement plant?
