The Q&A Archives: Hedge Selection

Question: What would you recommend for a hedge that's fast growing,dense,low maintaince, grows tall,and able to handle the weather of Erie,Pa. I'm looking for a tall-screen type hedge and do not know what type to look for. THANK YOU!

Answer: There are many possibilities depending on the sun and wind and soil conditions you have. You might want to consult with your local county extension for a more localized suggestion, but you could consider arborvitae, privet, lilac, and red twigged dogwoods. You might also consider a tall fence if you need immediate screening since all of the plants will take several years to grow to any size at all.
