Cold lemonade is for summer evenings, hot coffee is for autumn mornings, and beautiful yards are for relaxing year-round! The best way to protect your small to medium-sized yard from noise and peeking neighbors is to plant a row of Baby Giant Thuja Green trees.
You may be wondering how a tree can be both “baby” and giant – Baby Giant Thujas are a smaller version of their popular predecessors, Thuja Green Giants. The main difference between the two is their size. While green giants can grow up to 50 or 60 feet, these Baby Thujas grow up to 14 feet.
When you’re growing a privacy screen, you don’t want your trees to overpower the space they’re surrounding–think design balance, maintaining narrow openings between the trees, and protecting sightlines. The 14 feet of cozy protection Baby Giant Thujas provide from noisy traffic and little Tommy next door also offers a visual barrier that maintains privacy within your smaller yard.
Need privacy quick? No worries! These trees grow up to 3 to 5 feet each year, and they boast dark green foliage year-round. They take up less circumference than their giant counterparts, and they are less expensive than building a traditional privacy fence. To add to their list of qualities, they are low-maintenance (no need to prune!), boast strong pest and disease resistance, and remain hearty during temperamental winters and throughout the year!
How often should I water my Baby Giant Thuja trees?
Water every day or two for the first 2 to 3 months until the trees are established. After that, you should provide one inch of water every week to ten days.
How should I space these trees when planting?
These trees should be planted 8 feet apart on the center and 4 feet apart on the diagonal.
The best time to plant Baby Giant Thuja trees is during spring or fall. They establish best when the weather is cool but not too cold. Planting in these conditions allows the tree’s roots to begin growing before things get too frosty or summer heat threatens to hinder growth.
Watering your Baby Giant Thuja is simple–they need about 1 inch of water per week. An easy way to maintain moisture is to provide a 2 to 3-inch layer of mulch over the soil in which you’ve planted them.
Fertilizing, pruning, and pollination for the Baby Giant Thuja can occur on an as-needed basis, making these lush green trees super low maintenance throughout their initial growth and maturity.
