The perfect yard should always have privacy in mind. After all, if your goal is to spend lots of quality time lounging poolside with your friends and family, the last thing you want to worry about are nosy neighbors getting into your business.

If you have children, private yards can provide some peace of mind when your kids are playing with their friends or alone. We want to be able to let our kids play in a safe place, away from the eyes of strangers. Hedges are the perfect solution for creating a secure and private play area for everyone in your family!

Benefits of Hedges in a landscape: 

  • Can block unwanted views
  • Can help reduce road noise
  • Can help create a private landscape
  • Can create shade
  • Can be used as a windbreak
  • Add value and beauty to yards


The Perfect Yard Always Starts Out with Privacy

Small yards, big yards, we know that no two landscapes are the same. There is a solution no matter what size yard you have. Hedges such as Indian Laurel Columns and Italian Cypress are perfect for planting in tighter spaces and creating privacy. Hedges are an excellent way to add some greenery to our arid environment and keep your property private!


Hedges Can Create Shade

When you plant hedges around a property line, you are creating more than a private area. Hedges can also create some much-needed shade to keep us more comfortable during our blistering hot sunny days of summer! Plus, hedges that are installed properly around a home can help lower the temperatures in rooms. Reduce energy use, save money, and live comfortably!

Sure, shade and privacy are must-haves in any landscape. That said, hedges are also highly effective windbreaks. It can get very windy in Las Vegas, so protect yourself with hedges that can block the wind. Do you live next to a busy road? Our fully-grown hedge specimens can be used as a sound barrier to help reduce sound from the street!
