You don’t have to build a fortress to get privacy from nosy neighbors and curious passersby. Beautiful shrubs and trees are tall enough to offer sanctuary while improving the visual appeal of your property. Privacy plantings are a quick, imaginative and beautiful way to improve your landscape and your quality of life.

One popular technique we use at Neave Landscaping is layered privacy plantings, where a mix of different plant life is used to create a robust visual effect that fills sight lines beautifully. The key to properly layering your foliage is to select the right types of plants. Deciduous shade trees are very popular as the “foundation” since they can grow quite tall. The remaining spaces are filled with staggered perennials, annuals and shrubs to offer a visually appealing blend that also shields your home from neighbors and onlookers.

Privacy plantings do more than give you privacy from your neighbors – they create sanctuaries within your own space. Container plants on your deck can also provide an aesthetically pleasing option for your outdoor living spaces. Our talented team can custom build the perfect planters that will complement the style of your home and create intimate outdoor settings.

Whether it’s complete or partial privacy that you’re looking for, Neave Landscaping can help. Our experts will help you select the perfect plants to give you the solitude you seek. Let us help you turn your home into a private retreat. Contact us today.

The timeframe in which the project was executed was much better than expected without any sacrifice in quality. In the end, Neave Group put our yard as a whole back together as well. From a new patio, landscape lighting to plantings/landscaping, and the installation of a fire pit. Nothin…
