Are you looking for landscaping solutions for your home that provide privacy? Have you struggled with finding a plant, shrub or tree that gives your home that perfect appeal while still providing adequate privacy? Don’t worry, we’ve had many customers struggle with the same issue and want to give you some tips and insight.
Tall Shrubs may be considered one of the best solutions for providing privacy, while staying budget efficient, but there are many other options to consider.
The most important factor in finding the perfect plant, shrub or tree is to analyze the space in which you want to fill. Is it a large space with some distance from the residence that needs privacy and shade? Is it a smaller space closer to the residence within the flower bed? Does the plant or tree have extensive space to grow or is it a tight spot?
Another factor to consider is your budget. Do you need a low-cost option like a shrub or would you prefer a minimally more expensive item like a tree?
Shrubs are low-cost alternatives for privacy and greenery, and planted properly, they can create stunning curb appeal. The Italian Cypress and Emerald Green are elegant and in-demand shrub options that most homeowners seek for small but impactive spaces.
If you’ve chosen a tree for your space and budget, an evergreen tree is probably the smartest choice as the leaves stay intact year round, creating total privacy. Live Oak trees provide much more privacy or cover than a shrub would and also provide an adequate amount of shade that a shrub wouldn’t. The larger the tree, the more privacy and shade it provides.
Purchasing a large aged Oak can be expensive, try a mid-size Oak with about a 3-4″ tree trunk. If fertilized and watered properly, it should be large in no time.
