Best Privacy Shrubs Cumming, GA

Do you need more privacy in your yard? Shrubs can be a great addition to your landscape if you want to block an unsightly view or keep others from seeing your space. The best privacy shrubs will grow densely yet requires little maintenance. Here are a few guidelines to help you decide which type of shrub is best for you.

Maintenance: Decide how much time you are willing to put into your privacy shrubs. If you are looking for a more formal looking fence from your shrub line, then be realistic in the amount of time you have for keeping them trimmed and shaped.

Location: The place you want your shrubs to be is very important in determining which type of shrub you should go with. If want your privacy hedge near a sidewalk, pool or driveway, you will need to avoid larger shrubs that have big root systems. Remember roots grow down and laterally.

Size: In picking out your shrubs, make certain that you are aware of its mature grown size. How it looks in the pot is not necessarily how big it will get. Decide how tall yours needs to be to accomplish your privacy goals.

Hardiness Zone: Choose a shrub that grows well in your area. The best plants to use for hedges in Georgia are those fully adapted to Georgia’s humid climate. Examples of thriving Georgia privacy shrubs are Saw Palmetto, Arrowwood Viburnum, Small Anise Tree, and Southern Wax Myrtle.

Debris or No Debris: There are two types of shrubs, deciduous and evergreen. You can expect deciduous or flowering shrubs to lose their leaves and flowers with the seasons, unlike evergreens, which will not require much maintenance at all. Are you okay with debris on the ground and surrounding your privacy shrub fence?

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
