Green Screens, Fences, and Borders

The home landscape can be thought of as an extension of our living space and much like the rooms in our homes we can use plants as structural elements in the landscape. If you’ve visited an arboretum or botanical garden you’ve likely seen walls created with different plant species such as evergreens and perennial shrubs. Explore design elements, some good species for creating screening, and design consideration for creating a green fence or screen successfully. Presenter: Austin Little
