Privacy Trees or Fence? Cumming, GA
privacy trees

If you want to border your property and gain some privacy at the same time, traditional hardscape fencing is not the only option. In fact, more and more homeowners are realizing the benefits of letting nature create their desired barrier.

Privacy trees can be a subtle, natural and aesthetically pleasing way to gain some solitude in your own yard. When strategically placed, these trees can take on many forms depending on your specific needs, personal style and how you want the shrubs, hedges or trees to compliment your overall landscape design.

There are many reasons why homeowners consider privacy trees as a border around their landscape, including the following:

  • Conceal an unsightly view
  • Get some privacy from a nosy neighbor
  • Have separation but without blocking sky, sunlight and natural breeze
  • Shield a swimming pool or entertainment area
  • Muffle street noise
  • Hide cars or street lights
  • Block strong winds

Why Choose Privacy Trees over Hardscape Fencing?

Hardscape fencing can be a very effective means of delivering privacy and protection. However, it is not for everyone. Some homeowners have strict guidelines from their HOA in regards to the type of fencing material, height and other specifications. This may not align with what you want to do or create in your backyard. Privacy trees are also ideal for those who want a “softscape” and environmentally-friendly solution. They can also add value to your property!

What Kind of Privacy Do You Need?

It is important that you choose the right privacy trees for your specific needs and style. A landscaping expert can help you accomplish this. You’ll need to consider a plant solution that is dense and holds its foliage year-round, especially if you are wanting to screen a permanent fixture such as street lamps, the house next door or a railroad. Spacing and height are also important considerations. In general evergreen conifers and broadleaved evergreens make excellent privacy trees. If you want color, Magnolia, Ornamental Cherry and Crabapple trees are popular choices.

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.

Denise D.

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!
