Privacy trees, hedges and plants in the garden

When you have an isolated house without a house around it, it is because without a doubt you like privacy and being able to live in your privacy without being disturbed by anyone. Likewise, if you live in a semi-detached house, even if you have neighbors on either side, you can also find your privacy and intimacy in a very simple way. But the key above all to find privacy is in the garden.

A garden where details are not taken care of in order to maintain privacy would be a garden in which all the neighbors or people who pass by at that moment could see your house, your things and worst of all … they would see you in your privacy invading your privacy. Personally I have always thought that one’s house is their refuge and as such prying eyes are out of place, for that reason today I want to talk to you about some trees, hedges and plants with which you can maintain privacy in your garden without you feeling invaded by no one. Take note!

The trees

Trees are undoubtedly the best ally for the privacy of your home, they are also a great investment that can bring you fruits for your own consumption. A tree will save you money thanks to its shade, it will allow you to reduce your heating bill, it will bring beauty to your garden, it will reduce air pollution leaving it cleaner and it will also increase the value of your property because trees are always a good. What more could you want?

But what would be the correct trees for your home? In addition to giving privacy, your trees will have to have other functions such as: provide shade, protect you from the wind, beautify the space, encourage animals to live in your garden (such as birds or squirrels), have fruits for your consumption but above all protect your privacy.

There are many types of trees that can be used to give you privacy such as lemon trees, orange trees, cypresses, braquiquito … but you will have to assess the characteristics of your land to assess what would be the type of tree that could be better in your yard.

The hedges

I also consider the hedges a perfect element that nature gives us so that we can protect our privacy and that our privacy is not affected. Fast-growing hedges are the most advisable because it will take less time to have your fence fenced with hedges.

The hedges in addition to providing your desired privacy will also provide you with an extraordinary beauty in your garden since some of them can give you beautiful flowers that will make your home a pleasant and beautiful place. But you will have to take into account the characteristics of the hedge you choose since it must grow to a considerable height in order to provide you with the privacy you want.

For example, the Arizónicas are a classic in hedge gardens and although over time it breaks down a lot, people use it very often, despite the fact that there are more alternatives.

The plants

Plants will also help you eliminate the feeling of being seen by others while using your garden. It does not matter if they are curious neighbors or prying eyes what matters is that you can use plants in your fence to protect your privacy. There are plants that will help you create a protective barrier against prying eyes, but I advise you to use those plants that have a fast growth so that you do not have to suffer a lot with the lack of privacy.

An example to put plants that protect your privacy is bamboo. Bamboo is a very successful aesthetic option because it has a great capacity for growth and expansion. There are two types of bamboo, those that grow fast or those that are grouped in clumps. In addition, bamboo is very resistant and grows very well in clay soils. Since they grow so quickly it is advisable to prune them often.

Another of the plants that are also excellent for creating privacy in your garden are climbing ivy or wild flowers . Both options are very suitable to combine with wooden fences since they can protect your privacy and also create a colorful and very beautiful appearance to your garden fence.

What do you think of these ideas to give privacy to your garden with trees, plants and hedges? Which of all the options do you consider best to protect your privacy? Or would you prefer the combination of all three options? Tell us your opinion!
