The aging trees were removed over the winter, giving way to space now flooded with sunlight. What is raw and exposed now will soon be lush and beautiful. We decided to screen the boundary fence with evergreens for vivid year round color and install a stone terrace for a fire pit and seating. We started with Emerald Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis ‘Emerald’). They will quickly grow up to 15′ high and will maintain their narrow shape. Over the summer, we will plant more evergreens on the boundary line and some shrubs and perennials in front of these. Watch for more photos as our project unfolds.
