Creating Privacy for your Backyard

By Dan Bailey, in Landscaping

Typically when you think of privacy for your backyard you think of a tall fence or a wall of green using leyland cypress trees or arborvitae.  A great way to break up that wall is to add some shrubs that will give you some more color and different shades of green throughout the seasons.  Add some curves to the flower beds and you will get some more room to add perennials or annuals for some extra color.

Great Natural Screening Trees:

  • Colorado Blue Spruce
  • Norwegian Spruce
  • River Birch
  • White Pine
  • Eastern Redbud
  • Serviceberry

Shrubs to add to the mix:

  • Itea
  • Clethera
  • Winterberry
  • Hydrangea
