How To Care

No Maintenance required!

You do not have to prune your Leyland Cypress tree. Just let them grow. Extremely drought tolerant, the Leyland Cypress is growing in popularity in areas where water restrictions have been implemented.

After planting, make sure you water your new trees every day for about 1 week. After the first week, start spacing out the waterings to every other day. For the third week water as needed.

Keep your Leyland Cypress trees fertilized with a high quality slow release fertilizer. Fertilizer will increase the growth rate and provide nutrients that are needed for the best health and color.

Landscape Ideas 

Privacy on Property Lines:

  • Space out the Leyland Cypress 6-10 feet apart.  If you plan on planting in a straight line we suggest planting 8-10 feet apart.  If you would like a more natural look, you can stagger the trees spacing them approximately 6-8 feet apart.  
  • Leave room on the property line for the trees to grow.  Don't plant directly on the property line because they will grow over the line onto your neighbor's property. 
  • Incorporate other flowering shrubs 6-10 Feet in front of your hedge for more color.
  • Also makes a great wind break

Manicured Hedge:

  • Plant your new Leyland Cypress 4-6 feet apart.  As your trees grow, keep the tops and sides sheared.
  • Creates an instant privacy hedge or living fence fast!

Privacy for Pool Areas:

  • Add Leyland Cypress Trees to parts of your yard where you need privacy.  You don't need to plant trees around your entire yard.  Simply look for the areas where you can plant 3-4 trees in a cluster to block out that neighbor's house or their window...

Tall Focal Specimen:

  • Leyland Cypress can also be used as a focal point.  Plant one in your yard and just let it grow.
  • It will definitely be the tallest tree in they yard.  

What makes the Leyland Cypress Tree so popular is its fast growth rate! Leyland Cypress Trees are the go-to tree for any privacy needed in your yard.

Leyland cypress

Great nursery to work with, product was as expected. Planted them and ordered 8 more. Came in good shape in 2days. Wil use this nursery again.

Great choice

Trees were came very quickly in good shape with minimal damage. A few of the 30 I purchased had some slight damage on the tips but nothing I was concerned about. In comparison I purchased some fruit trees from another supplier that I did not realize were bare root trees. Due to their condition, I expect to lose at least half. I do not buy bare root trees for that reason.


Very happy

Can’t believe you can get trees online. First experience and my husband and I are happy. We ended up getting the larger ones and boy was it worth it. They were right in the middle of the size specified. Some were a little bit larger. They came within 2 days. They said they are fast growing and good for privacy.
