When you plant privacy trees you’re planting a living wall, an extension of your home, if you will. So don't hesitate to sit down and take a few minutes to draw up a design, one that you know you will really love and enjoy for many years to come. 

There are a few options for layout and design when it comes to privacy & screening. Be sure to head to our Design Center for helpful tips and ideas. Right off the bat, think about what your specific needs are, do you want year-round privacy, or just a visual block or maybe a little bit of both? Think about planting a variety of evergreen and deciduous trees as opposed to just one variety for added aesthetic interest. There are so many options and you really can get creative here. It doesn’t have to be boring! Be sure to check out the Before & After Video to see just what we mean!
