Conifer border in suburban/rural-ish setting
Hi, all. We live on a 1+1/2 acre plot about 20 miles northeast of Seattle, next to an unsightly manufactured home north of us. There is probably about 50 feet between our homes, and the portion I'm concerned with is about ~20 feet wide, filled with some thin, tall Red Alder trees, ferns and residual branches, stumps, from the invasive blackberry vines, etc we cleaned up in there last year (still battling the vine "sprouts" but they're increasingly less aggressive w/ongoing physical management).
I would like to screen the trailer by planting a conifer border, probably going back about 75 long. Thinking a mix of Western Hemlock, Western Red Cedar, Serbian Spruce, Deodar Cedar, Incense Cedar, Leyland Cypress. I believe these are all good with sun/part shade, and are quick growers. Considering Grand Fir. None of these would shade our home and size is not a problem, but I'm wondering about
spacing, placement, rate of growth, etc. Just welcoming thoughts, ideas, comments????
