Leyland Cypress - will they get out of hand?
We moved to our house last year and the previous owners planted a row of Leyland Cypresses next to the driveway. Then another row next to that row (our side yard) which borders one side of our leach field for our septic system and another row at the property line which borders the other side of the leach field. They are about 15 feet tall already and getting very full. I feel claustrophobic! I worry that they will get too large. I am not sure about their root system. They are maybe 3 feet from the driveway. When they get big will they damage our cement driveway? Will they interfere with our septic system? Is it possible to have these taken out by a landscaper and then, can they be replanted elsewhere or will they die? They are growing fast and I need to do something. I know you can trim them, but there are 15 of them and if they need a lot of maintenance, then I'm not sure if we will be able to keep up with it. Help!!!!!!!
