Privacy Shrubs/Trees
We recently purchased a property and had to cut down 5 large dead Hemlocks from our property line. We are putting up a fence, but would like to plant some sort of shrubs/trees for more privacy & possibly noise control. I'm very new to gardening, so any advice on what would work well? Thank you!

You have lots of options of large shrubs and/or small trees that would work well for these purposes. Is the site in full sun or is there shade from other trees? Regardless, you can go to the advanced search option in our plant encyclopedia at for ideas. You can type in your Hardiness Zone, the height that you'd like the trees or shrubs to be, sun or shade tolerance, and any other features you'd like to designate.
