Walls and Hedges

Posted: 05/09/2013 at 11:39

Foundations of wall will be concrete, stones loosely cemented together....natural gaps within stones will be left....therefore in theory it will look like a dry stone wall but with a bit of cement fixing them in place. This wall sounds complicated but not really!  The wall will be approx 3.5 feet high.

We were thinking of putting concrete foundations for the wall......hedging plants would still be OK?

It is for a garden. The wall and hedge on top will be partitioning our home area v  work area (industrial unit) therefore need privacy and also need the wall to screen off vehicles parking on the "work side of wall". We have fair amount of strong winds coming up the valley..hedging has to be quite robust. We are around 10 miles from coast. Also, do I need to worry about various hedging plants root systems with them in the wall?

I will be building two stone walls - side by side and filling with soil...and planting hedge on top.....wondering how wide of a gap should I leave between both walls.....need a thick hedge for privacy.

Any tips on how wide the wall should be for planting hedging plants. Any hedging plants best suited for this?
