“Gain privacy without sacrificing beauty. This evergreen screen will provide year-round seclusion, a home for wildlife, and a feast for the eyes. It’s prettier than a hedge and friendlier than a fence. What is it? An evergreen screen, featuring tough, easy-care plants. Hemlock, pine, and spruce anchor a mosaic of evergreens–with a few deciduous plants thrown in for contrast. This bed is about 15 feet wide and 30 feet long and intended for a sunny, well-drained site. Note: Plants are spaced closely for quick privacy. If space is lacking in your landscape, substitute dwarf cultivars or use fewer specimens.”

It’s not that you don’t like your neighbors, it’s just that we all want privacy in our own homes and particularly in our gardens. When you talk to tree suppliers, focus on why you really want the tree. Young trees are cheaper and often establish better – but if you want privacy soon, then consider how fast the tree grows. If a tree is slow-growing, then mature specimens will be very expensive. But young trees will take years to get to where you want them. Read on to learn more about the best evergreen screening options available for your outside space!
