emerald green arborvitaes
we are trying to make a privacy screen in our backyard with emerald green arborvitae and leyland cypress.....we planted 41 total to surround our backyard.....the emeralds go all the way down one side and the leylands go down the other side.....We have never planted either before and they have been in the yard approximately 6-8 weeks----all seem to be doing fine....however, we began with the arbor vitae and planted the first 5 about 8 feet apart.....once we did a bit of research, we realized that was too far apart, so as we continued with the rest, we planted them 6 feet apart.
My question is-------we think we should plant sky pencil japanese holly dead set between the ones planted 8 feet apart so this would eventually fill in the gap....
Does anyone have any input? Our goal is to create a total privacy screen with the trees. We would prefer not to pull any of them up and start over
