Building Privacy Into Your Landscape
Creating a Landscape Wall
Enjoying the serenity and quiet of your backyard landscape is one of the pleasures of home ownership. But achieving that serene, garden-like setting sometimes requires designing a “landscape wall” to provide the privacy you desire.
That wall doesn’t have to be made of brick and mortar or even a wooden fence; building privacy into your landscape design takes a little creativity, sweat equity and the right plant material.
The professionals at Weed Man appreciate the aesthetic as well as practical value an ornamental border can provide. These borders can add color to your landscape and help block the hustle and bustle of the outside world out – at least for a little while!
If you are looking to build a “landscape wall” for your property, the following is a list of suggested plants and trees you may want to consider installing. Your local Weed Man professional can help identify what plants would work best for your landscape, as well as planting and care tips. Here are a few suggestions, but be sure and check with local experts before making your final selection.

- Wax myrtle
- African/English box wood
