Instant Screening, on the Cheap


In my narrow new townhouse garden, I immediately planted some evergreens that’ll eventually provide all the screening I need.  In the intervening 3-5 years, however, should I resign myself to sitting in plain view of passersby on foot and wheel?  A visiting gardener friend inspired me to DO something about it – asap!   Here’s the story, with lots of before/after photos.


  1. Thanks for sharing such great ideas, and especially the pictures. I’m sure you thought of this, but when your cedars get taller, how will that affect the sunlight that gets into your space? I have a couple of areas I would like to screen, but it would block valuable sunlight if I do.
