Types of Privacy Trees

There are different kinds of trees, depending on where you want to plant them and purpose. Some of them include the hybrid willow tree, Leyland cypress, Spartan juniper, sky pencil holly, flowering dogwood trees, and weeping podocarpus. All these trees have a different height range, sunlight, planting procedures, and width range.

Height and Width Range

Ensure choosing a tree that offers the right height range for your screening purposes when fully grown. During planting, you would want to give the plant enough space to grow so that it does not go over into your neighbor’s yard when it is fully grown. Also, consider the overhead power lines so that the trees won’t mature to interfere with the lines.

Correct Spacing

It is important to put enough space between the trees. Consider how wide your tree will spread when it is fully grown. You will be required to measure the width of the plant you wish to install. Larger plants call for a considerable head start in terms of privacy as they will need to be planted closer to each other during their first installation.

Know the Type of Soil

The kind of soil in your area matters a lot. Many trees do well in moist soil and slightly acidic soil. However, if the topsoil in your area is not very ideal, you may want to bring in a professional to advise you better. Find out about the pH of the soil and the right amount of water required.
