Planting for privacy

Written by: Mary Malik

The power of beautiful landscaping to elevate the curb appeal of your home is undeniable. It certainly adds depth, color and character to the overall appearance of your property. However, a well-designed landscape can do even more by providing privacy for your home and family.  Doing a little homework before making your landscaping decisions will go a long way in protecting your home from the intrusions of neighbors and street noise. Experts agree that there are several things to be aware of when landscaping for privacy is your goal. The amount of space you want to fill, sun exposure of your home, desire of color and the time of year that privacy is required are all things to consider. With so many options available, it will serve you well to do some research and make a solid plan before heading out to purchase.
