Creating an Evergreen Privacy Screen
Choosing your plants
The first step to creating an evergreen privacy screen is choosing the type of plant you want to create the screen with. There are many different options and our clients tend to make their decision based on budget, appearance, soil ratings, or a combination of all three. Some of the most popular plants used in Western North Carolina are:
- Leland Cyprus
- Emerald Green Giants Arborvitae
- Yoshino Cryptomeria
Other popular plants used as evergreen privacy screens are:
- Skip Laurel
- Wax Leaf Privet
We encourage our clients to choose more than one type of plant to create a more natural look. We also help our customer decide between low-maintenance shrubs and more high maintenance shrubs. If you choose the latter, then you should plan on spending time shaping your bushes yearly.
Planting Your Privacy Hedge
Once you have the plant or plants you prefer, we work with you to outline the space you are looking to place the privacy hedge. Often it resides along the property line, but that isn’t always the case. Since shrub roots grow down and laterally, you must consider what you are putting the plants near. You wouldn’t want these plants to affect your sidewalk, driveway, pool or foundation. Lastly, if you have a large amount of space, you may want to consider making a double row.
Once the boundary is established, Ecoscapes will create the plan for planting. We often offset the hedge plants to give a fuller effect and allow them to get more sun and air. This also allows for the plants to give with wind.
