Property Improvement - Arborvitae Wall

We are working to improve the look and the drainage on our South property line. 

Arborvitae is a popular evergreen choice for hedges because of its tall, narrow growth habit. Arborvitae grows best in full sun, but will tolerate light shade and prefer fertile, moist, well-drained soil.
We’re installing catch basins between the newly planted Arborvitaes and then trenching a drainage pipe along the backside of the tree line all the way to the street.  This is to improve the environment for the Arborvitae, as they cannot survive in extremely wet conditions.  This also improves the drainage situation for our South neighbor, who was periodically experiencing basement water.

  1. I really like the look of the multiple hedges in a line used as a barrier. It is more beautiful than a traditional chain link fence, yet still borders off the property. The hedges grow good in sunlight or without which is good for where we are building our new office. I really like this look.
