What To Plant For Privacy Near Fir And Cedar Trees
Question From: Bothell, Washington, United States
Q: We have 3-75' to 100' firs & 1-75' cedar in an area that is now exposed due to a housing project. After considering the Leyland Cypress & other fast growing evergreens we believe they could be damaged digging any holes with so many existing roots showing. QUESTION: We're now considering fast growing bamboo & want to know if we build a 4-5' berm on TOP of some roots, but 8-10' away from base of trees will we be damaging our evergreens? Thanks!
Fast growing bamboo, the spreading variety will eat up your landscape. You need to get an onsite inspection from a professional. To find a certified arborist in your area go to www.TCIA.org and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
