Privacy trees are a great investment – they make front and back yards feel more homey and comfortable, and outdoor entertaining feels more comfortable when you’ve got some privacy from neighbors. Privacy trees are also great for shielding front windows if you keep your curtains open for your plants! Whether you have a small front yard in the city or sprawling field in the country, there are plenty of evergreen trees and plants for privacy in suit landscapes of any size.
For gardeners in many parts of the country, fall is a great time to plant just about anything. Except in the coldest regions, fall can provide most perennials, shrubs and trees with enough time to become established in their new home before experiencing extreme heat, cold or drought. Familiarity with your own climate, hardiness zone and the hardiness of the plant you want to put in the ground will guide your decision.
Landscaping is meant to be pleasing to the eye and also functional. We want you to use your yard to its full potential: a place to relax, a place to play, and whatever other hobbies you may have. Maybe grow a veggie garden or entertain friends.
