Hedge Update

Some of you may remember that I planted a fast-growing hedge in May in an effort to gain some privacy on my property. For a comical background on the planting process, please read my post titled Holes.

The hedge was nothing more than a line of sticks when I first planted it. This is what it looks like at the beginning of August, just three months later...

There's still not enough of a barrier to prevent the guy who rents out that space from watching us while we play outside and eat our dinner at the dining room table by our bay window, but it's nice to watch it grow. Next year it should spread out enough to make a difference.

Looks way better! They sure do grow fast, and any type of barrier should help with your annoying neighbors! It will be so cool when they totally block their entire view from you! But like Lisa said, hopefully you won't be there next year!!

That does grow fast. Just keep fertilizing it.

It you would keep cutting the growth as it grows past the top of your fence it would force more growth to the shorter branches and the hedge would become thicker and cover more area. Also start training the side branches and tie them to the fence to force the sidewards growth.
Just thought a hint from a landscaper and gardener would help.
