Variegated Dogwoods vs. Arborvitaes?
If this was your view of your neighbors' yard, would you replace these variegated dogwoods with arborvitae trees or would you leave these? Ideally would also like to put tree in back right corner - white star magnolia or crab apple perhaps?
Bothers me but not my husband to see their house and them in the summer on their deck (they aren't creepy or anything but they do spend a lot of time out there so they can always see what we are doing in our backyard...) I have young kids and they have older kids (if that makes any difference) :-)
House is north facing.
What would you do to fill that space if you owned our house?
Note: fence is to be replaced but we have already been told it cannot be any higher...
