I was needing some advice on privacy fencing on slopped property. Which is the better chioce, fencing or trees? I have dogs that I don't want roaming the neighborhood, but I also have prying neighbors that is always looking to see what I am doing. I can't decide which is the best and the cheapest. Please help.
How about the invisible fence for the dog and then trees? Otherwise, try 6-foot high privacy fencing and then pick a few spots where you plant tall trees, to reduce the cost. We got thuja arborvitae that are considered fast growing and they have grown 4-5 feet in 3 years (with a little fertilizing after the first year!) Buy the trees around 3-4 feet to start if you really want them to grow tall. Some can be trimmed like a hedge so they don't get too tall.
