Plants to screen unwanted view Q&A

How can I create some privacy in my yard without fencing?

Consider low maintenance hedge plants for areas around patios. They will help you to enjoy the patio and not be trimming hedges every week. Using a combination of hedge plants allows you to add in some different colors to keep things interesting. You might consider mixing in some flowering hedge plants for that unique splash of color. Your visitors will envy you.

What about just creating a private space, like a patio?

Your visitors will envy you.

What can I do to make my hedge interesting?

One way to make your hedge stand out is to use a corner plant as the focus point. You could use a nice Caesalpinia pulcherrima more commonly known as a Red Dwarf Poinciana in a corner with a shorter shrub plant for the borders. It is a beautiful flowering tree/shrub that stays under 10 feet tall and puts on a show of orange/red flowers. There are many others to choose from, it all comes down to your preference

What are the best hedges for privacy?

Again, that comes down to personal taste and needs. Hedge landscaping can be just as much fun as any other type of gardening.
