Need Privacy Screen from Busy Road
Hello I live in Northern Jersey on a busy road. I currently have a row of cherry laurel shrubs(small) and behind them I have Emerald Green Arbs. The Arbs were a very poor suggestion by the Landscaper unfortunately. I have two Large old Oaks that hover over this area so it is partially shady in the summer. The Arbs do get sun, but certainly not full sun. The Arbs are ok, but they are not thriving in this area and get beat up from the road salt every year. I was planning on moving the Arbs to my yard where they will do great.
However, I need something to replace them with. I have considered Leylands, Green Giants, Eastern redcedar, and Hemlock. Am I on the right path here? I really need a good screen that is visually appealing all year long. Obviously there is a lot working against it here. But I do have a sprinkler zone for the trees. Water will not be a problem. Obviously there is much more sun in the winter:) Thanks for your help.
