I like Laurel for a very quick growing screening hedge but not on a scale such as this! It doesn’t suit the countryside, I’ve never seen fields and fields of Laurel. Will look very much out of place.
Buying plants will be cheaper if you're thinking of polytunnels, for 3000 plants, think how big that would have to be to accommodate plants in 8” or so pots.
I’ve bought plants from here,https://www.hedgesdirect.co.uk/acatalog/mixed_native_hedging_range.html
very good, and for £600.00 you can buy the lot. 30 to 40p per plant is good. It will cost more than that to buy and have a poly tunnel built. Costs of compost, flower pots, feed etc. You won’t need 5 per metre if you use these. 3 will be plenty.
