Thanks Verdun If I can get a Choisya which grows to 6ft it will be just the thing - I do have one of these in my back garden but it is barely 3ft

Thank you to all for answering my problem - I have to admit it's driving me crazy having to mop up every few days - it makes the lawn look so untidy!

I may give it one more chance and prune it when the weather gets a little better and if I still have the same problem then I think I may have to remove it and plant something else in its place as I do need something to give me a little provacy from the road.

Any suggestions on something which will bush out and be low maintenance? - preferably not deciduous?

I have a Red Robin shrub in my garden and I am constantly having to clean up the lawn because of fallen leaves. It doesn't seem to be deciduous as it generally retains its leaves through the winter. However single leaves fall constantly on the garden and I am usually tidying up every week sometimes more.  A lot of the leaves that fall have some kind of black spot on them.  Are they falling because its the natural thing to do at this time of year or because they have some kind of disease and if so how can I put it right?  I would be grateful for any help with this problem as I don't know whether to cut it down or give it a bit longer.

I have this Red Robin bush in my garden and it looses a lot of leaves which are blown all over the garden and beyond.  These leaves have black spots on them.  Is it loosing leaves because it is infected or because it is a natural thing with this shrub?
