Or, a concrete company may be willing to sell rolls even cheaper.

I’m not sure if it would work on privet but it may be worth a try. They would strip the very top layer of bark off leaving the cambium layer intact. Then drill holes in a diamond shaped pattern and insert the plugs. The tree didn’t know it was in trouble so it never sent the signal to sprout more trees from its extensive root system. Damn, I need to try this! I truly haven’t thought about this in years. It’s certainly worth a try. The tree gave up mushrooms until the day it died.
