View Full Planting & Care Instructions

Leyland Cypresses grow best in full sun (at least six hours of sunlight daily).

drops of water


We recommend letting a garden hose run for about 1 to 3 minutes per week, depending on the moistness of your soil (check for moistness about 3 inches down).



If the soil is missing or low on nutrients, use a nutrient-specific fertilizer; otherwise, you won't need fertilizer.

America's Most Popular Privacy Tree

Why Leyland Cypress Trees?

The Leyland Cypress is America's most planted privacy tree for a reason. For starters, this amazing tree grows up to 3 to 5 feet each year, boasts feathery soft, lush foliage, and is drought tolerant. Strength and beauty in one? Check.

Well-known for their iconic columnar silhouettes, Leyland Cypresses grow very fast and thicken to create a solid wall. And their textured foliage is soft to the touch - no unpleasant thorns or prickly leaves. Plus, it stays green year-round, giving you complete privacy. Though your Leyland Cypress grows rapidly, it's easily pruned to your desired shape and height. But even without trimming, your Leyland Cypress trees will grow in a uniform, symmetrical shape that gives you a dense, living wall.

Privacy abounds

They arrived healthy and remain healthy. Definitely more beautiful and more encompassing than a ho-hum stockade fence. CJ

Leyland Cypress

The ten trees i planted in Blue Creek,Wa.about a week and a half ago are doing good. They even made it through two nights of sub freezing temperatures. I’m as happy as I can be. Thank you Laura for being there for me
