Fast Growing Trees

Growth rate is big factor that should be considered when searching for the right hedge plants for your yard. Depending on the type, you can find either slow or fast growing trees that have an average growth rate anywhere between 1 to 6 feet per year, so focus on this rather than the size you see at the plant nursery. Thuja green giant trees are extremely quick growing, animal and pest resistant, and offer lush, thick green coverage year round, making it a top choice among gardening experts. Also ranking high on the long list of landscaping trees for privacy are spireas, weeping willows, and the red maple tree which can all be trimmed and pruned to increase growth and keep them healthy. Weeping trees grow to a remarkable 30 feet tall and 30 feet wide with beautiful light green leaves that reach the ground. With this type of girth it easily provides both shade and privacy during the sunny warm months. A more colorful version of this landscaping wetland native is the weeping cherry tree which blossoms similarly to the willow, but sprouts gorgeous pink and white flowers.

Best Trees for a Yard

Accent these brilliant maples with dark evergreen shrubs and you will have beautiful contrasting hues that all your friends and family will admire. Another plant of Asian descent is bamboo, which is a flowering perennial evergreen native to Southeast Asia. Bamboo plants are characteristically grown in closely spaced rows that provide an almost impermeable shield from unwanted pests, unsightly scenery or meddlesome neighbors. Though one of the best trees for your yard in terms of privacy, bamboo is not the easiest to care for so a homeowner with little time for maintenance may want to search for a simpler hedge. Although not a flowering plant, maple trees can also add color and ornamentation to an otherwise dull yard. The Japanese maple tree produces striking red, pink, yellow, green, and even purplish foliage depending on which variety you plant and the different months of the year. The “Dancing Peacock” is a specific variety of this type of maple that produces deep purplish pink leaves in the fall making them the ideal colorful plant for Japanese garden ideas.
