Moving into a new house, with 6 tall leylandi across the back.
I would like to have them cut down to 6ft from ground, and also chop off all the leaves, so just leaving bare trunks in ground.
I want to be able to use the trunks to screw nails etc, secure fence against it etc.
I know that leaves won't grow back, but will the roots keep on growing ? I want to use the soil for growing veg fruit and flowers.
Is this idea a possibility, or has my brain gone to fairyland ?
