Planting for Privacy Checklist


Last updated:

Create a beautiful and private outdoor space by following this comprehensive checklist. Begin by evaluating the area's privacy requirements and deciding on the dimensions of the screen. Select suitable plant species based on location and climate, and consider using evergreens for year-round coverage. Add visual interest with plants of varying heights and textures. Ensure proper spacing for growth, and prepare the soil by removing weeds and adding amendments. Plant your selections carefully, water them thoroughly, and apply mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Regularly monitor for pests and diseases, prune as needed, and fertilize according to each plant's specific needs.
