Privacy Trees Planting Set-Ups

For instant privacy, pick out larger privacy trees and hedges. Be sure to stagger your trees by planting 2 rows. For something like Thuja Green Giant or Leyland Cypress plan for about 6 to 8 feet between trees on the diagonal. This will leave you with about 6 to 10 feet of space between each tree within the rows and the rows will be approximately 4 to 6 feet apart.

plant diagonally 6-8 feet apart
plant in a straight line 4-6 feet apart
