They have an essential role in creating the look and feel you want in your yard and often have the added benefit of easy care.

Hedges & Screens

privacy

“I recently moved into a new house, and my neighbors aren't exactly what I dreamed of…What do you have in the way of quite fast growing shrubs for privacy?”

This is a common question year 'round. Privacy is important! One important thing to consider is that the faster something grows, the more you'll have to manage it. This means sometimes pruning 3 times a year! If you choose something that may take a little longer to fill in, it will require less work in the long term.
