Our Screening Plant Range

Nicholsons are well known for a wide selection of Screening Plants: those that are used to create a natural barrier.  Pleaches, hedging, columns and other shapes can all provide screening.  Whether above or in lieu of a wall or a fence to provide a screen, or across a garden to create views, screening plants can be deciduous or evergreen and are extremely versatile.

We have the widest range of high quality Screening Plants in the area, and our prices are extremely competitive. We have a whole bed devoted entirely to displaying different types of pleached screens, and other beds are home to hedging that can be used for screening.

The most popular screening species are Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) and Beech (Fagus sylvatica) but we stock many others including Field Maple (Acer campestre), Liquidambar, Crab (Malus Everest), Holm Oak (Quercus ilex) and Lime (Tilia).

For our full range of Screening Plants and current availability see prices and availability.

The Screening Plants we sell are in the following ranges

  • Pleaches and Screens – these are where there is a tree with a clear stem, commonly about 1.5-2m high (you can specify which you need) that has a head above that has been flattened to create a 2 dimensional screen.  Maturity from 12-14cm girth upwards.
  • Stilted Hedging and Hedging – we are proud to grow and offer a massive range – come in and see!
  • Individual Trees – these can be chosen from the Ornamental or Specimen range and we are happy to advise on the most suitable species for your requirements.

Need Some Expert knowledge?

Choosing which Screening Plants to buy can be daunting. Here at Nicholsons we have fully trained staff to help with the choice of species and size. We also offer a planting service for these and all the trees we supply.

Having planted the tree you need to consider aftercare and we can advise on this too – weed control, pruning, pests and diseases. Come and speak to us and we will see if we can help.
