A Natural Screen
Homeowners often landscape with the goal of privacy, and for that, Cleverly recommends what they call Hollywood-Style Hedges. “Not only do these provide privacy, but they can also be used as a natural border, sound barrier, or for shade.” They get their name from being thick and hard to see through — “so no more pesky unwanted views from a neighbor’s house,” quips Cleverly. Great selections in this realm include Ficus Nitida Columns, Japanese Blueberry, and Wax Leaf Privet. Moon Valley also offers hedge material that produces beautiful flowers like the Bottlebrush and Oleander.
