Harrington Park N.J. Landscape Screening
Landscaping Services in Bergen County
Often property owners may think every screen planting is the same. Just dig a hole and put the plant in. Not so is all to often the case. First of all the top 12 inches of soil was full of roots of all diameters from the shade trees that previously existed there. Once the roots were removed and the soil raked and amended; the new trees could be planted within this good soil enabling them to establish a good root system in a fertile growing medium.
To ensure proper watering at this crucial stage of a plant’s life, drip line irrigation can be installed so the new plants receive a deep watering on a scheduled watering timetable. When planting, spacing is also important, as overcrowding will cause serious dieback as the roots compete for growing space.
The plants selected for this screening are Arborvitae “green giants”. The green giant arborvitae is a large, vigorous, fast-growing everygreen that can grow as much as 3’ per year until maturity. It’s pyramidal to conical shape boasts dense, rich green foliage that darkens or bronzes slightly in the winter.
This is an exceptional landscape tree for use as a screen, hedge or single specimen. It is also resistant to wind once established and can withstand heavy ice or snow, making it a good choice for a natural windbreak.
