I stand partially corrected but still a good idea to discuss it with a local wildlife expert.

If there are newts then you can't actually disturb them...

You need to check with local wildlife monitoring people who might be able to relocate them before touching the pond.

Holly had crossed my mind cos you can keep the bottom reasonably tightly trimmed for the safety of your eyes but let the top run away, right?

Only around six feet as there is a photonia pink that has reached the top of the fence already so that will deal with its bit of the fence soon!

If I had the space down that end I'd love that!

I'd love a hawthorn for the wildlife aspect but evergreen would be better.

I've wondered about viburnum but also worried about height...

NutC and Dove, the cotoneaster looks like it would get too wide for the space I have unless one can train it up and lift the crown?

Ingle, I really would prefer a single plan that will fill some airspace above the height of the fence?

I'm not a fan of conifers overall. Is there such a thing as a wildlife friendly conifer?
