Screening Garden

Garden screening to protect your privacy.

Screen your space from your neighbours with living walls of tall-growing shrubs, indigenous and exotic trees, conifers, trellises and climbers. Consider planting evergreens so that the foliage is not reduced during autumn and winter.

Pittosporum Tenuifolium, Viburnum and Eugenia are good examples of tall-growing shrubs that you can use. For a formal look, prune tall-growing shrubs regularly, creating definition and structure. For a more natural look, combine a variety of shrubs.

You can also grow a climber on a trellis with small gaps – the climber will fill the gaps and create a visually solid screen to give privacy or obscure an unpleasant view.
