The Q&A Archives: privacy trees and plants

Question: We are an architecture firm and building our own home. I was wondering if you give discounts for plants etc. We are doing our own landscape plan but are questioning what trees to use for screening. We would rather have live fence and it need to be at least 12' tall and slow growing. What are you suggestions

Answer: Monrovia is a wholesale nursery and does not sell directly to the public, but you could certainly ask your local nursery for consideration if you are purchasing a large quantity of plants. Leyland cypress is a popular tree for screening and privacy plantings. You might also consider Witchita Blue or Skyrocket junipers. These are reasonably fast growing, upright plants. Or, American arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis) is a tall, columnar evergreen that is a natural for planting in rows for quick screening. Hope one of these suggestions works for you in your landscape!
