Moles AND Crane flies

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 11:46
I had an infestation of moles a couple of years ago, having a lot of wildlife in my garden l had to be careful what l could use, l came across 'mole smoke' it comes in a small plastic tub that you take the top off, light the fuse, and push it in the hole cover it quickly with soil so that the smoke doesn't escape. I had to do this quite a few times to different mole hills and they are not cheep (about ??8 each) touch wood l haven't had a visit this year even though the field next to me is covered in mole hills, l always keep a couple of tubs to hand just in case.

I have a drop into my garden from a hard standing of .5m deep by 2.5m long, a wooden picket fence has been their for the past 20+ years and is now beyond repair. I was thinking of planting something evergreen that l could train along horizontal poles, must be very narrow, slowish growing and wildlife friendly, sun morning and evening in a dry, light neutral soil, open to the elements so must be 'hardy' and no more than about 2m tall. Can anyone help?
