Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.
Evergreens Make Excellent Living Fences, Privacy Hedges and More
While there are hundreds of home improvements that people invest money in, multiple studies have shown that the only kind of home improvements that can actually raise the value of a house for more than the cost of the improvement is landscaping. While most people think of flowers, the truth is that the right kind of landscaping can not only improve a home's value, but it can also lower energy bills and provide a better living space. This is particularly true for any homeowner who is looking for a way to separate a space without using a fence.
Using evergreens as a fence or natural property line divider is a great way to separate your property from your neighbor without worrying about running afoul of building codes.
For homeowner who just want to section off a part of their yard, a low to medium sized hedge or bush, such as a privet or boxwood hedges can be an attractive way to gain a small amount of privacy. For example, these types of plants are usually planted around a swimming pool to keep a natural and attractive barrier between this water feature and the rest of the yard. Since these evergreens don't lose their leaves, they also don't clog up pool filters. In other cases, homeowners use these types of plants to separate the back of their property from a public area behind or next to their property. This allows them to keep the view of a park, meadow, or mountain, but still provides a natural way to alert others that they are about to step onto private property.
