Evergreen Screen Plant – Fast Growing

Q: A developer is putting multiple homes on the hill across the creek from our back yard. If we are to have any measure of privacy, we need to get something tall and fast-growing planted quickly.

A: I visited with two landscapers recently and both recommended ‘Green Giant’ arborvitae. Much depends on your pocketbook but planting the trees 10′ – 12′ apart in two staggered rows will give you a tall screen in short order.
