Gain privacy without sacrificing beauty. This evergreen screen will provide year-round seclusion, a home for wildlife, and a feast for the eyes.

It’s prettier than a hedge and friendlier than a fence. What is it? An evergreen screen, featuring tough, easy-care plants. Hemlock, pine, and spruce anchor a mosaic of evergreens--with a few deciduous plants thrown in for contrast. This bed is about 15 feet wide and 30 feet long and intended for a sunny, well-drained site. Note: Plants are spaced closely for quick privacy. If space is lacking in your landscape, substitute dwarf cultivars or use fewer specimens.
