Keep Out the Rest of the World

When it comes to creating a beautiful and inviting outdoor space safe from prying eyes, nothing beats shrubs for a privacy screen. A living privacy screen not only adds beauty to your yard or garden, it also freshens the air, acts as a habitat for birds, and dampens noise! Here are some tips for designing your own private outdoor space.shrubs for privacy

  • Plan Your Space. You’ll want to make sure that you give plants enough space to grow, but put them close enough they can grow together to actually create a privacy screen. If you’re using evergreen shrubs assume that three to four feet between each will work best.
  • Pick the Right Plants. The best shrubs for your needs will vary based on soil, climate, budget, and existing habitat. We have a huge variety of shrubs, and we can help you pick the right kinds for your outdoor space!
  • Arrange and Train. Once you’ve planted your shrubs, tie the stems together with string to make sure they grow in a straight line. You’ll also want to train them to grow correctly with judicious pruning so you wind up with the look and shape you want.
