Evergreen privacy screen, how many feet back from road?
I am planting a 6 ft tall evergreen privacy screen between two driveways located on a side road, not a main road. Straight line. The driveway and side road form a "T". The only traffic is the people that live on the street.
How many feet back from the road would be a safe distance to start the privacy screen, in order to maintain visibility for vehicles pulling out of the driveways, both forward and in reverse?
There are no regulations, I have checked with county code enforcement and a lawyer. You can plant right to the property line, which is set back 8 feet from the road. There are no sidewalks. But that does not mean you cannot get sued if someone has an accident because of the trees blocking. I am not sure if 8ft would be enough to protect yourself in the court of law if faced with that type of situation.
