Privacy Shrubs – Suggested Plants

Q: What type of privacy shrubs would you recommend to plant on the Georgia Power easement part of my property? I need plants that grow no more than fifteen feet high.

A: I recommend ‘Emerald Green’ arborvitae and ‘Nellie Stevens’ holly. The holly can grow a bit taller than you want but it can be pruned once every few years to keep it in bounds. I have a list of more screening plants for different situations at xrl.us/screening
