Who needs to put up an expensive fence when you can grow one for much less? Plus, trees and shrubs that give you great privacy also make for some awesome looking landscaping. That’s what I’m talking about in this week’s eHow installation.
For the past month or so I’ve been dreaming about privacy hedges and trees morning, noon and night. I know, it’s kind of weird, huh? The things is, we’ve always had a fence. But the house we just bought a few weeks ago doesn’t have one, and to be completely honest, I don’t think it would look good with one.
So that puts me in sort of a pickle.
I like privacy — a lot. But planting rows of privacy trees or shrubs around the perimeter of our property is going to be a big investment, so I want to get it right…the first time.
