Help with hedge ident

Can anyone help with a name for the hedge in the attached photos? I think maybe a type of laurel but not sure as I do lawns not plants. It's in my own garden and I want to move the hedge due to It being in a daft place. Can it be replanted again,  I guess it's not been in long as it comes out as whole rootballs with a good tug . We have only been here 6 months so not sure of history.

Many thanks Chris

    Portuguese laurel type i would say , certainly worth a few quid at 6 ft high -- so id get them moved quickly because the root ball looks quite small and dry for a plant that size. 

    Its a tough plant -- just ensure the location its going has good soil and it will need regualr watering all year -- particularly next few months. You could use mycorrhizal powder at re planting -- or bone meal -- or fish blood and bone meal.
