Evergreen trees are majestic trees that will enhance any property.

They stay green year-round and attract birds and other small wildlife. They are not only suitable for providing shade and lawn ornamentation but serve as great property borders. Evergreen trees can also be less expensive than erecting a fence, and they do not harm the environment.

One way to keep a yard private, establish a border, or keep children and pets in or out is by using a private plant. Privet plants are the most effective selling privacy hedge. They can grow from 12 to 15 feet tall, grow on any border, and require very little care. These hedges are not only high for privacy; they also add beauty and formal touch to any property.

Evergreen trees also make great living fences. There are benefits to using living fences. Living fences provide seclusion from neighbors, roads, and other properties. They also can aid in noise reduction and block unsightly and unwanted views. Another great reason to use a living fence is that there are no local restrictions on the height of a tree, so they can be as tall as needed. The spruce pines, pine trees, the Leyland cypress trees, and the white pine are hardy trees that can withstand all types of weather and need little maintenance. These trees make excellent choices for a living fence.

Natural borders are a beneficial addition to the property. A tall tree line can serve as a windbreaker, blocking the wind and weather from damaging homes, gardens, and possessions.

There are factors to consider before planting a tree for beauty, privacy, hedges, or a wind barrier. The first one needs to decide how much space is required to be covered. The thickness and height of the wall also need to be considered. Lifespan, a rate of growth, and finally, the amount of necessary care are other factors to consider. When planting the trees, it is wise to plant two rows of trees spaced evenly with faster-growing trees in the back. It is also important to plant trees at the same time to ensure consistent growth. Trimming and shaping will also keep a neat and even look.

Whether choosing a sweet spruce pine, white pine, or a private plant for privacy, a boundary, or as a windbreaker, a living fence is an excellent idea. Not only does it serve a practical purpose, but it also can add to the beauty of your landscape.
