Riverside Plants

Posted: 20/11/2012 at 07:02


I have just moved house and now live parallel with a small river/stream.

Due to this I find that the garden is very wet, water logged. We currently have a small 3.5 foot tall fence but I would like something a little higher.

Rather than putting a fence up I thought I would kill 2 birds with 1 stone and plant a screen to also try and suck some moisture out of the garden.

At the closest point, the border is only about 3.5 meters from the house, so I am looking for a good screening plant/tree/shrub that I can plant close to the house and that likes water (boggy soil).

I have been told willow but dont know if this is going to cause root problems, any other suggestions or reassurances on willow would be most welcome.
