  1. Hedge restrictions in Hessen

    anybody any knowledge on garden related matters in Germany regarding hedges? Thanks
  2. Hedge restrictions in Hessen

    Hello,   we recently moved into a house with a garden that needs a hedge out at the back of the garden, To explain the situation, the back wall is quite low, 120cm and over the back wall is a car park for a newly built apartment block which is reasonably upmarket. The drop on the other side of the wall is 2.5 metres into the car park for the new apartments.   We were thinking of several options, the most cost effective would be a fake hedge and the most attractive would be a 3 metre height and 12 metre length. Is 3 metres too high? Main concern being is that will we get legal action if erect such a hedge!!! However it only overlooks a carpark and the back of the apartments.   Other options: add further trees, Taxus Baccata is the preferred small fern tree, but huge cost - we already have a few of these back there, but currently nowhere near sufficient to function as a privacy/safety wall. These trees can eventually grow to 2-3 metres apparently.   The other main concern is that our 2 year old child could in the near future climb over the 120cm back wall and badly injure himself fallling off 2.5m drop. any advice on hedge restrictions in Hessen welcome.   Thanks
