How can I use shrubs to make a fence?

I'd like to border my yard with shrubbery to create a barrier between my neighbor and myself. What shrubs do I use and how far apart should I plant them?

Pyramidal Arborvitae are a good choice. They can grow to a height of 20-30 feet at maturity. They grow about 1 foot per year. They grow best in a fertile, well drained but moist soil in full sun to a light shade. They need to be planted about 5 feet apart.

I would recommmend fast growing evergreens - such as cypress... they grow quickly and make a great fence.. within just a few years you will not longer be able to see your neighbors yard.. plant about 4 feet apart to allow room to grow and fill in instead of just growing up and smothering one another out.

Primrose Jasmine (Jasminum Mesnyi) is often used for hedges. This evergreen shrub can grow up to eight feet tall and three and a half feet wide.

You should use evergreen shrubs that will retain their foliage year round. Please consult the planting information labels of your selection to determine the planting distance.
