Sometimes you have to plant a privacy screen fast. Whether you have just built a fence that the neighbours think is unsightly or your neighbour has just built a shrine to aliens, sometimes you just need plants that grow fast and can block the view. You have many options available to you if you are wondering what to plant for privacy.
Formal and informal hedges usually cost less than a fence, and have an attractive, natural look. Most plants listed below grow an average of 20-50 cm per year. How fast your hedge grows depends on growing conditions and the initial size of the plants.
Fast growing evergreen shrubs can provide a dense privacy screen all year long. Privacy hedges also serve as windbreaks, reduce street noise and block unwanted views. While evergreen shrubs provide privacy throughout the year, some fast growing trees and shrubs make good privacy screens for part of the year.
Fast growing deciduous plants often bear attractive flowers and may become a focal point in the landscape.
