Privacy Tree Suggestions? All 99 we planted died :(
My DH and I moved into our home in Charlotte, NC a little over a year ago. Our backyard faces a main road and an elementary school along with a main electrical box where workers often park to address issues. Creating privacy before we have kids is a number one priority which is why we made it our main project the first year. We've built garden boxes and are creating an awesome garden and having a lot of fun doing it together. We planted about 99 3 foot Emerald Green Arborvitae along the fence line of our almost 1 acre backyard. We picked them up from Lowes ourselves and planted each one within 24 hours of receiving them in February. Here's where the problem lies: they all died!
Fortunately Lowes accepts returns within a year so we were at least able to recoup the money but now we're both feeling very intimidated as to what should be our next step. Right now I have a backyard covered in holes without a plan (which I'm sure our HOA just loves!). We're just starting to throw ideas out, so any suggestions are very much welcomed...
