The Leyland Cypress is a fast-growing evergreen tree with a pyramidal shape. The tree's dense growth and tall height make it a great choice for creating a border shade that will block unwanted sights and reduce neighborhood noise. Besides its utility, this evergreen is nice to look at with feathery soft, textured leaves. The tree grows 3 to 4 feet per year and reaches a height of about 60-70 feet and a spread of 15-25 feet. The Leyland is drought tolerant and hardy in Zones 6-10. The Leyland should be planted in full sun but can tolerate most types of soil, as long as they are well-drained. Once planted, prune for the first few years in order to encourage dense growth. USDA ZONES:Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Leyland Cypress trees tend to be low maintenance trees. For the first six weeks you will need to water them 2-3 times a week. After this, time the tree will become established and you will only need to water as needed. Prune in mid-summer to maintain its shape.
