Emerald Arborvitae | Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd'
Emerald arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd') is the perfect plant for when you absolutely, positively need to make your neighbors disappear, from ground level to about 12-15 feet up. Because they stay so narrow (3-4 feet) you need quite a few of them, but they also provide a lot of screening without eating a lot of your yard. Emerald arborvitae will drown in wet soil so be sure they can drain. The more sun you can give it the better. If you plant it in shade, the foliage will thin out to where it's about as effective a privacy screen as a fishnet.
