Some considerations to keep in mind

If you are looking for fast growing trees or hedges you should choose those that will grow at least a meter tall in a year, otherwise they would be too small. Evergreen trees and hedges are the most suitable since both their leaves and branches grow throughout the year and will offer you total privacy.

There are also hedges that can measure more than three meters high and almost two meters wide, so you can have a good hedge that gives you great privacy.


Cypress is a very fast growing tree that is great for privacy in your home. Normally it is planted to accompany concrete or stone walls, but being so high they provide great privacy for people who have them in their garden.

In addition to being very common in Spain (you can see them in cemeteries and large farms) they also provide excellent protection against the wind throughout the year, since it is also evergreen. A large cypress can reach great heights .


There are many species of the Privet but if you like it, you should choose the one that is more resistant and grows faster (you can see an example in the cover photo of this article). These plants can bring you pretty flowers in spring and summer, but they have a pretty big drawback: they attract bees and wasps. But so that this does not happen you will have to prune the hedge before the flowers arrive.

The Privet grows up to three and a half meters tall and can also be up to two meters wide with a very compact structure.
