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.  

The Leyland Cypress Tree is so popular because of its fast growth rate. They are the go-to tree for any privacy needed in your yard.

Leyland Cypress

All I can say is WOW!!!! I ordered 9 trees and received them yesterday. I planted them today and I was very pleased. They were so green and well packed. I think I will be ordering 9 more to create more privacy. I live on 5 acres and part of an HOA, main reason for getting these privacy trees. Now I just need them to grow 15ft wide and 15-20 feet high by the experience and love this company.

Good experience

The reds were sent quickly and were in good shape. There was a nice, colored instruction paper on how to plant the trees and their care. Would definitely buy from them again!
