Raised bed over Leylandii stumps

Posted: 04/06/2013 at 21:39

Hey guys thanks for the replies, I really appreciate them

The trees that were here were around the same size, took me and my dad a full weekend to chop them down and get them to the tip... Amazing how much light the garden gets now though!

glad the stumps won't cause much of a problem, will get an acidity test done on the soil soon... Then I can build my bed anf plan what to plant. Will post pics of my progress regularly

Thanks for the response, had the stumps taken to ground level the other day (couldn't upload a recent pic due to the time of posting last night lol)

I was thinking of using a raised bed as I think the ground will choked with roots. 

The bamboo screening is a nice idea, the outlook is very open with a large field beyond the path you can see, but I do feel a bit exposed at times.

Raised bed over Leylandii stumps

Hello, im new to the forum.

I'm looking for a bit of advice.  Last year i moved to a house which had 6 large Leyandii weeds at the bottom of the garden, which were swiftly chopped.  I would like to create a more subtle natural screen at the bottom of my garden.  I was thinking of creating a raised bed, using some old decking boards.

I've attached a picture of the area in question (these stumps are now at ground level)

Is it a good idea to do this? Or will i risk the trees sprouting again?

Any advice is welcome

Excuse the state of the garden, i havent done anything with this area yet
