Title: Plant trees as soon as you can
Post by: New Home Expert on October 08, 2018, 10:03:07 am
With so many new home developments having houses all crowded in close together (so housebuilders can maximise returns on their land) planting trees near the boundary has never been more important.

This is not for now, it is a plan for the future - 5 to 10 years ahead. 
A time when that nice considerate first neighbour at the back fence or next door who  bought new has moved on and a neighbour from hell has taken his place. 
A time when you are perhaps retired and want to spend more time in your garden and want or appreciate more privacy and not having to look at their messy unkempt gardens.

More importantly, a time when you are looking to sell and move on and will be more likely to sell with a private secluded garden, not overlooked by neighbour's windows.

So get planting trees along the boundary as soon as you can, in positions that will give you peace, seclusion and privacy.

We are not talking fast growing conifers, but species such as Silver Birch, and Hornbeam.
