Private garden design ideas – the best trees for screening
Creating privacy in the garden is often one of the things I frequently get asked to achieve. In all private garden design ideas, creating a space that feels secure with privacy is important.
Many screening trees often have a clear system to reach up to fence panel height of around 1.82 m. Then they have a bushy canopy above. This type of screening is particularly useful if you are overlooked by neighbouring properties, and would like to draw the eye towards a specific feature, or would like to retain low-level exposure i.e. of an attractive wall or area.
Below I give you 10 top great trees for screening that you could use as a private garden design idea:
- Cherry laurel
- Cyprus oak
- English you
- Home oak
- Lombardi poplar
- Magnolia grandiflora
- Western red cedar
- White cedar
