Add Privacy to Your Property Now

Privacy is one of the most important things to us and it is important that we get to come home to a place that feels safe and away from the world. Not only does that apply to your home, but also your yard.

If you feel like you do not have the privacy you want in your home, hedges are one of the best design options that will solve your problem and add even more benefits to your home such as a greener yard, higher property value, and increased curb appeal!

Whether you are looking for a pure green “living wall” or something more colorful, we have many hedge options to fit your design needs! Learn more about some of our top hedges that our Arizona customers love to plant in their properties.

Indian Laurel Columns

Indian Laurel columns, also known as ‘Ficus nitida’ are our top sellers when designing a formal privacy hedge. They are fast-growing and evergreen, which means they stay green and thick all year long! This giant hedge performs great when planted along property edges to block the sun, noise, wind, and any unwanted views.

The Indian Laurel hedge has lush, dense foliage and strong branches that can be pruned into almost any shape. Once established, these columns become very water-wise and thrive in full sun, which only adds to their appeal for Arizona property owners.





Oleanders are super drought-tolerant, so they are ideal for any landscape across Arizona. This tall, Oleander bush can be used, and looks great, as a colorful fast-growing privacy hedge. Oleander privacy hedges can be designed with different bloom colors such as red, pink, and white oleander flowers. They bloom from spring through fall, giving your home a lively “living wall”.

Because of their tolerance to drought, we love to use them in water wise, or low-water, designs. The oleander is a great addition to these types of yards because it brings foliage and colorful blooms and contrasts with the other plant materials around.



Bottlebrush Tree


The Bottlebrush tree, also known as the Lemon Bottlebrush tree, is one of few hedge options with such bright red pops of color. This evergreen shrub works as a colorful hedge that makes for a fantastic addition to any landscape. With a height and width span of 3-10 feet, these will surely grow into a gorgeous privacy hedge.

The Bottlebrush blooms in spring with some off-season blooms in the fall and can sometimes even go into the winter, creating a festive look. The Bottlebrush likes to be in full sun and only needs occasional deep watering, a bit more so in our hotter summer months.
