Arborvitae Spacing to Fence
I'm a new homeowner and am looking for some advice on what was my first major yard project (or possibly yard mistake). I was/am trying to create a screen between my yard and road that runs along the side of it, so I planted 15 emerald green arborvitae as a hedge. They are spaced 4 four apart and 30 inches in from my 4 foot high picket fence.
Now that I'm done, I'm starting to worry that the arbs are too close to the fence. So now I'm looking for second opinions. Are they too close? If so, how far back should they be planted? If I need to move them, should I do it now, or wait 'till fall? They have been planted over the last two weekends, so some have been in the ground for two weeks and others just got planted today.
Thanks for the help
