evergreen hedge


Hi. I want to plant a cheap evergreen hedge that grows up to 6-9 feet tall that I don't have to prune. Any ideas? Thanks!

Yes, go ahead and plant some Emerald Green Arbovitaes.

Another option is techny arborvitae, a lesser known species, but one that has a nicer look. It grows wider than the typically arborvitae and looks more natural. I've gotten them at Home Depot -- have to get them early before they neglect them! Or, try a local nursery.

Mary Jane,
Do you want this for a screen, border, fence?

Hollies, junipers, privet, ligustrum.....

In keeping with the Arborvitae theme,look into the Nigra variety.As far as I'm concerned nothing beats them for your application. Fast growing,tough,attractive, and absolutely no pruning or shaping. And I'm fussy about keeping things trimmed,
