Answer: photon distance
Italian legislation regarding the planting of plants and shrubs on the property's border allows you to place hedge plants about 50 cm from your property's border, therefore if the border is delimited by a ditch or a canal in Practice you can place your plants on the outer edge of the ditch itself. This is because hedge plants are not considered tall trees, which should be placed at least 150 cm from the border. Among the photinia plants you can leave from 45 to 75 cm, it depends on how thick you want the hedge, and how long you are willing to wait before having a full and compact hedge.
