When it comes to gardening, nothing is more sought after than privacy. Arborvitae, more commonly known as hedging cedars are by far the most popular plant used as a screen, a windbreak, to muffle sound or to create privacy.
Several plant varieties are commonly used:
- Smargd or Emerald Cedars - Thuja occidentalis 'Smargd'
- Excelsa Red Cedar - Thuja plicata 'Excelsa'
All three of these hedging cedars are ideal plants for creating a thick green wall or hedge. Each has different habits and characteristics to be aware of.
All hedging cedars perform best in full sun, in moist, but well drained soil. Apply a transplanter fertilizer during planting and an evergreen food at least 2-3 times a year for best growth and appearance. Prune lightly, but more often to create a healthy, dense, green hedge.
