What order to plant a natural fence over a few years.
I am researching a natural fence for a large property in Zone 5b (-25oC - canada). The fence will be next to a busy road and approx 400 ft long. The house is approx 300 ft from where the fence will be. So excessive height is not an issue. The area has full sun, and very little shade. We have a healthy deer population.
The main reason for the fence is privacy, but wind breaker would also be useful.
I am considering a combination of trees and possibly some shrubs. I have listed some below that I have looked at and would welcome any comments and warnings.
Thuja Smaragd (Emerald Green Cedar) - for its salt resistance - there is a lot of spray from the road damaged neighbors trees
Juniperus scopulorum (Rocky Mountain Juniper )
Thuja Plicata (Western Red Cedar)
Pseudotsuga Menziesii (Douglas Fir)
Tsuga (Eastern Hemlock)
Thuja Green Giant
Prunus (English Laurel)
Due to the cost of this fence, I am going to have to plant over two or three years. I would appreciate any advice in which order I should plant the trees / shrubs.
Many thanks in advance
