I need to plant a screening hedge as some of my garden has been sold off- quick growing, thick but attractive are the key words.
It is a west facing site but quite shaded with a building 2m to the West and another to the South so only gets late in the day direct sun. The hedge would run North/South. I am looking at getting a fairly well grown hedge planted- are there any particular things to watch for with companies selling 'ready made' hedges. I also intend to move a tree to also shield the overlooking- any advice on both when and how to do that? Very Many thanks for any suggestions.

Yews are mostly shade tolerant and there are many choices among them in height and width. Consult with a local nursery for the best choice.
