I live in upstate NY, Capital Region area. This weekend I plan on putting two or three arborvitae in the back of my yard, along my stockade fence. I do not want to plant them on top of each other, rather maybe 5-6 feet in between.

My question: What should I plant in between them? What bushes or plants would look good inbetween the arborvitae?

Some background info on my yard: To the left is an english garden, miss and match of bushes and plants. To the right of my yard is a raised bed for my garden. It is just the back that needs some work.

Thanks All

RE: arborvitae

There are a number of different arbs that range quite a bit in eventual width. What kind are these? Do you have room to plant a bit in front of the gaps of the arbs rather than creating a line of soldiers?
