The summer is almost here and we are all waiting patiently to enjoy the outdoors.
If you are looking for a natural way to create a barrier between your garden and your neighbour's garden or hide your home from the passers-by and provide more privacy, we can give you a couple of ideas on how to achieve it.
The plants featured can also serve for camouflage and beautification of old walls and fences or remodelling the garden, for practicality you can also drain paved paths. You must consider the desires and needs of your chosen foliage and consult experts about the ideal planting period.
The evergreen shrubbery of shiny, leathery leaves that form thick treetop will provide safe protection and privacy to your outdoor space. It's easy to grow, durable and it's extremely decorative and attractive due to its red colour. Photinia grows rapidly, as much as one meter a year.
Ideal as a living fence, tolerates pruning and quickly receives the desired shape and looks very nice if it is raised in the shape of a tree.
This Evergreen plant from the grass family grows very fast and lush. Depending on the species it can grow between one and ten meters in height. Bamboo is a common ornamental plant in the home, but it can also be grown in large pots or as a bushy living fence and transform the garden into a true exotic oasis.
When a living fence is planted, very often the choice falls on the arborvitae and not for no reason: this plant is grows rapidly, it is hardy and easy to maintain. There are many types of arborvitae, with this variety it is possible you can get a living fence up to 6 metres high.
If you are not afraid of unusual solutions (and you don’t have small children) the cactus can be the right choice. The extremely attractive cactus fence will not only protect you from unwanted onlookers but also from uninvited guests!
Buxus is a proven solution for a live fence, it doesn’t require much care and can adapt to different conditions. There are about 30 species of buxus: the low buxus grows up one meter high and the high species can reach up to as much as eight metres in height.
It is a long-lasting plant of slow growth, which you can plant in elegant high planters. This way you can compensate for the height and it will also give your garden a striking look.
If however you need a lush and dense wall immediately why not consider artificial plants. While waiting for a natural fence to grow a good artificial replacement can be the perfect solution, no maintenance and immediate results.
