Innovative Ways to Use Privacy Trees in Your Garden
Gardens are fantastic spaces. They offer you and your family the chance to get outside to enjoy the fresh air. Gardening is great exercise and can be a lot of fun too. Plus, if you grow your own fruit and vegetables, like we do, you can save a lot of money.
Our new drought-tolerant yard has been a great success. It looks good and is proving easy to maintain. But, we could do with a bit more privacy, so I have been doing a little research. I was surprised to discover that there are so many different types of privacy trees available. Just click here and you will see what I mean. It really does not matter how big or small your garden is or what your climate is like you can buy privacy trees that will look lovely and do the job.
There are lots of ways you can use them to enhance your garden as well as improve the privacy of the space. Here are just a few ideas.
Create stunning hedges
Hedging can be a great way of creating an attractive boundary between you and your neighbor. They look far nicer than a brick wall or a fence. Of course, they take some maintaining. But, provided you choose the right variety you will only have to cut it once a year.
When choosing hedging trees it is important to do your research. You need to know how tall they will grow. Nobody wants to end up having to chop down mature trees that are blocking the light or leaving too much of your garden in shade.
A nice dense hedge can be a great way to create a bit of shade in your garden. But, you need to bear in mind that not a lot of other plants will be able to grow in this area.
Create a green room
If you buy something like willow you could create a beautiful green structure in your garden. A simple approach is to plant young will saplings in a circle. When they get tall enough bend the tops of them into the centre and tie them together. Provided you do it the right way and weave the side branches together you can create a lovely green room. It really is amazing what you can do with this beautiful tree. Just take a look at this Pinterest board and you will see what I mean.
Use them to partition your garden
Many families like to divide their gardens up into separate areas. Setting aside an area for the kids to play ball games is a great way of keeping your plants safe. A lot of us like to grow our own vegetables, but also like the idea of having a traditional garden to enjoy too. A great way of getting the best of both worlds is to use privacy trees to create living screens that separate one area from another.
As you can see, this style of tree can make a great addition to your garden. If you choose fast-growing varieties you will not have to pay much for each tree.
Making them a really affordable way to enhance you yard.
