Large conifer trees fronted by large ornamental grasses and medium shrubs and perennials work together to effectively and beautifully screen and provide privacy on this property--by Landscape Design Associates of Westchester, Inc.
It is best to space each tree [and each row of trees] about 10 feet apart, with the trees of each row staggered like footprints. From a distance they will both appear and function like a single tight row planted only 5 ft apart, but without the resulting competition for water, sunshine and nutrients. For a more natural look, use multiple species and plant them more randomly, not in straight lines.
