OK so I have read a few posts about planting hedges over easements which I can gather is not generally a good idea. My question is if the easement is 2 metres from the back fence and I want to plant a hedge directly on the fence to block out some neighbours do I really have a concern?
I keep coming across websites that say Lilly Pilly's have a shallow root system so I would assume this to be a good choice however if you google plants over easements most council websites have a big do not plant Lilly Pilly's anywhere near easement, why is this??
The bloody over marketed lily pilly. No wonder they are mentioned so much on websites. Theres a stack of coin behind them being promoted.
To me if there was a hedge that will find its way in, that's ya plant.
Caprosma, Pitto screen master (dare I say it), Hibiscus, Albany Wooly bush (a wonderful choice), Diosma, Gero wax would be an even better choice. In fact, use a Gero wax. Hedges to perfection, loves being clipped and flowers very heavily when clipped. The roots will never be an issue. Never.
