Spacing for Skyrocket or Blue Arrow Juniper Hedge
We are going to plant a privacy hedge of Skyrocket or Blue Arrow Juniper. We're in zone 6a and the location is in full sun with good drainage.
We want it dense so you can't see through it. Of course as it thins out near the top there will be gaps, but it would be ideal if it were full for the bottom 8-10 feet at least.
I've seen recommended spacing from 18 inches to 4 feet, with most recommendations in the 2-3' range.
Does anyone have practical experience on how close we could plant these to minimize the gaps?
