You don't have to mention anything in pots as they are moveable, but anything in the ground has to be noted.

Ticks

Wear long trousers and wear your socks outside. Wear long sleeves. This only applies when you are working in vegetation as ticks like to hitch a lift on passing warm-blooded animals.

Michael, that sounds very complicated. But each to their own.

If the hedge grows too quickly, prune it or trim it. Most of us on this site try to garden without unnecessary chemicals. Am I right?

Do not be tempted to 'tidy' up the magnolia further. They don't react well to pruning.

Do not contemplate a brick wall. Very expensive. Plants are a good filter.

The best way to prevent this happening is to start the sets off in modules. As soon as the sets have sturdy shoots and good roots the birds will leave them alone when you plant them out.

For now, cover the sets with fleece until they are anchored in the soil.

There are many varieties. Some late, some early.

Problem Trees

I would counsel against putting any tree in a lawn. Makes mowing difficult. Put it to one side.

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

I get the impression that the photos were taken from an upstairs window. At ground level the warehouse wall will not loom so large. The main view will be of your own fencing. Deal with that rather than the warehouse wall.

I agree with everybody else. Bring the eye into the garden rather than drawing it upwards and outwards.
