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.

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.

Browsing through our images online is a quick and easy way to see what shrubs are good for privacy. However, if you want to gain more detailed information on growing seasons, the best soil for tree planting, or watering schedules, our in depth articles and online plant nursery will provide you with such. When it comes to privacy bushes and shrubs there are a few things you need to consider, including the climate in which you live, what size you want the plants to reach, and where you are going to plant them. For areas that are subject to changing weather patterns and cooler temperatures you will benefit from choosing durable, and stress-tolerant species such as tall evergreen shrubs and pine trees. Unlike deciduous trees that shed their leaves in the winter, evergreens keep their lush green foliage throughout all the seasons and therefore make great year round privacy hedges.
