The Q&A Archives: privacy shrub/tree

Question: I need something to discourage teenagers from passing through our property. We live in the mountains with a street above and below our property.

Answer: Shrubs with thorns, such a Barberry, Pyracantha, or Rosa Rugosa are typically used to discourage foot traffic. What you choose will depend upon whether or not it is full sunshine (the above will work in sunny sites). Hope this helps divert traffic!
