Planting a Friendly Fence

Planting a Friendly Fence

Sometimes it is just not kosher to put up that tall, wooden privacy fence. There are different options to building a privacy screen that are not loud and obnoxious, and will still make your neighbor enjoy you. If you are ready to put that fence up, whether it is for your privacy, because their yard looks terrible, or for the sake of your animals, building a natural friendly fence is the better way to go.

When building a friendly fence, the nice term for a privacy screen, it is important to get the correct type of bushes that will make a proper hedge. Hedges can be somewhat overwhelming, because they require constant maintenance, trimming, and pruning. If you are not the biggest fan of doing yard work, there are particular types of bushes and shrubs that you will want to purchase to limit the amount of growth out and around the hedge.

A popular privacy screen shrub is the Nellie R. Stevens Holly tree. The best part about a holly hedge is that generally holly will stay green throughout the year. This will prevent ever having that dull brown hedge when the summer gets hot and dry. This type of plant also is dense, so you will not have patches in your hedge if you plant them right and prune them correctly. These plants grow quickly, so you’ll be able to get a lot of hedge very quickly with these. Since it is a holly, you will enjoy the dark greener all year, and in the winter you will see lots of red berries that add a lot of nice color to your plants.
