Cedar screen

The view to the neighbour on our south side is quite open and we wanted a screen part way along the backyard for privacy.  We struggled with what kind of shrubs to purchase as we wanted an intermittent screen.  We considered white cedar, black cedar, emerald cedar and junipers.  In the end, we settled on the emerald cedars despite our concern that they were too ornamental.  They started looking a lot better as the price dropped at Home Depot from $30.00 per tree to $10.00 per tree.  We ended up getting 7 and are really happy with them. They are easy to maintain and look bright green all year around.
