We recently moved into a house that had two full grown arborvitaes that were spaced far apart and provided no shield from the neighbors. We are thinking the former owner had something there that died.

We planted two 5 foot arborvitaes 3 feet from each base per the instructions. Being new homeowners and new to gardening, we think these look ridiculous next to the full grown ones and are wondering if we made a mistake.

Hoping to get some input from more seasoned gardeners as to whether or not you think these will grow in nicely to provide an effective privacy hedge or if they are other alternatives we should look into. FYI - we will be mulching the area soon.

These are fast growing plants, but you need to be patient: nothing grows to the height you want overnight. They'll provide screening from your neighbours soon enough.
