We have a fairly large property and looking into getting a fence for our family (primarily our Great Pyrnees dog) would be ideal for our situation. However, each quote we had received was well over $15K. While this may not be in our budget as of now, fences do offer that perfect boundary for your backyard. Having a fence isn’t the only way to get privacy outside though! Trees and shrubs offer similar privacy levels at a fraction of the cost.
1 Thuja Green Giant Tree
One of, if not the most popular privacy tree is the Thuja Green Giant tree, which costs around $100-$300 per tree.
2 Emerald Green Thuja Tree
Sporting a slightly different thickness, the Emerald Green Thuja Tree is another great option for privacy. (approximately $100-$200 per 5 trees)
3 Skip Laurel Hedge
Some say that this sort of hedge does not need any sort of maintenence which adds to it’s perks. (approximately $100-$200 per bushel)
4 Spartan Juniper Trees
Very tall and thin trees offer increased privacy due to their size over time. (approximately $100-$200 per tree)
5 Going Artificial
Would you believe that the picture below represents a tree that is totally artificial? (prices range from $20-$100)
6 Going Artificial (part 2)
There are many options when it comes to artificial shrubbery including many like the one below. (prices range from $20-$100)
7 Bamboo Landscaping
Bamboo is one of the most durable plants around and also one that can grow perfectly into privacy! (approximately $50-$200)
8 Red Twig Dogwood
For a bolder look, the red twig dogwood can offer some privacy, although not as much as other options. Still, it’s definitely an interesting look if you are open to it!
9 Privet Hedge
The Privet hedge is perfect for a uniform privacy. There’s a bit of maintenence here as you’ll need to keep up with the growth of this shrub.
10 Yew Hedge
The yew hedge is another good option for privacy!
