The Q&A Archives: natural privacy fence

Question: What are the best trees I should plant in my backyard that would be a natural barrier between my backyard neighbor and myself? I am looking for something reasonably priced and that would grow very fast and provide the most privacy.

Answer: Leyland Cypress, Arborvitae, photinia or viburnum will all serve the purpose. Leyland cypress is very fast growing; arborvitae pyramidalis is a tall, columnar evergreen with a width of only 2-3 feet if growing space is at a premium; photinia and viburnums are broadleaf evergreen shrubs. Hope one of these is right for your landscape.
