Nikki,

It would be okay for a screen that is moderately dense. Varieties differ somewhat in size making spacing a bit variable. However a good standard spacing would be about 4-5 feet apart. Growth like any pant begins slowly but in a couple of years could reach 2 feet a year with plenty of water and fertilizer.

However a single layer plant screens do not provide for much noise reduction.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
