Privacy Tree planting
hello, im new here. This is my situation. Our family lives on 2 acres and my wife and i will be buying her fathers house next door on 5 acres in about 18-24 months and selling ours. I want to plant a row of privacy trees to block off our old house from our new one as we want more privacy. Obviously, i want to plant right now so that i dont insult our new neighbors by immediately blocking them out when they move into our old house.
im thinking about green giants. they look good to me and my wife, seem cheap enough and hardy enough. i like the fast grow rate they claim.
is this a good tree for this?
should i plant staggered rows or single? (im covering areas where trees are not there. there are already some cedars and some tall hedges. im going to fill in the voids.
what size should i plant? i can get 20 1-2 ft tall 1 yr trees for about $65.00. thats about how many i need. and the size sounds good.
and finally, anything wrong with buying them of the web? dont seem to have them around locally. home depot sells them for 50 buck for a 3 footer.
i was thinking about buying from here:
thanks. i dont know much about trees, even though ive got about 15 on my property now....and will have about 50 or 60 when we move next door.
