Big day coming up in my neck of the woods

United States
November 3, 2015 6:06pm CST
A big day for us anyway. The furniture we ordered last week will be here between noon and 2:00 pm. The landscape guy will be here with the Leyland Cypress trees to plant as a boarder between our property and the next one that is up for sale. The current owner of that land had someone take down the trees/shrubs that separated us from him. We have no clue why, it looks awful. I guess he thought it would sell better...I hope it never sells. So right now instead of a tree line we have 150 feet of 'a mess' that they left. The Leyland Cypress trees are about 5 feet high and they will grow to 15 or 20 feet high and 5-6 feet wide. They will, in a few years, be a nice barrier. He is getting the trees on sale 1/2 price and he isn't charging us an arm or a leg to plant them! And, the best part, he will show up, unlike others we've hired in the past!

Why don't you want the property next door to sell? I hope everything went well with the furniture and the trees.

Those trees really do make nice barriers. They look very graceful too.

I hope it all goes well for you. I wonder if your able to get hurricanes there as well. That could reak havoc on your house if those trees fall.

We are far far from the coast we don't get hurricanes. We do get very strong winds on a regular basis.

plus if the barrier is on your side you can keep it maintained and look however you want

Perhaps the guy thought whoever came to see the property will get more attracted by looking at the neighbours than a line of trees

If he had it cleaned up it would look ok, but they knocked down the trees and left stumps, etc.

It is true that the cypress grow quickly. Many use those trees instead of other kind of fences.

They are mainly used as a border fro the ones I've seen - they really do a good job...of course it will be a few years before ours will do that job!

@AbbyGreenhill Yes, you will need about three to five years, but they are so nice to see.

@LadyDuck Years ago we stayed at a rental cottage in North Carolina - they had a row of them and they had to be 30 feet tall, that's when I fell in love with them.
