Add Privacy to Your Property Now

Privacy is one of the most important things to us, and 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 Texas residents love to plant in their properties.



Oleanders are super drought-tolerant, so they are ideal for any landscape across Texas, especially if you are trying to conserve water with your design. 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.

Japanese Blueberry

Need extra privacy in your yard and need something tall and broad? Look no further than the Japanese Blueberry Tree. This visually appealing evergreen is a slow-growing tree with dense and lush dark-green foliage. It can reach heights up to two stories if left to grow naturally. We recommend buying as big as you can, so you can enjoy the perks of this tree from the day we install it in your yard.

The density and growth pattern of this tree makes it a perfect choice for a hedge, excelling in privacy and security. It can also be sheared into any size and shape that fits your design. A Japanese Blueberry hedge will thrive in full sun, and it handles the cold quite well too. In the springtime, you will notice small, white flowers blooming to liven up your privacy hedge.

Italian Cypress

The Italian Cypress tree is unmistakable to most, with their lush green foliage and tall, narrow upright form. Their natural ability to thrive in sunny climates on a minimal amount of water makes them a popular choice for just about any landscape, especially in Texas.

Plant these column evergreens in a row and create an attractive natural property divider. You can plant these narrow fast-growing privacy hedges in your yard to bring the look of the Mediterranean to landscapes throughout the Texas area.
