The Q&A Archives: Best evergreen shrub for privacy

Question: I need to know which is the best evergreen shrub for the fence line. (privacy)I need a fast grower,disease resistant, fairly tall. I had red tip photenias that were great but they all died after 10 years.

Answer: Leyland cypress is probably the fastest growing evergreen hedge material. Hollies, cryptomeria, Eastern white pine, and cherry laurel are other suggestions. Best wishes with your living fence!
