Backyard not so private?…You can change that!

Is a private back yard on your wish list for your next home in the South Bend, Mishawaka, Notre Dame area? Don’t count a house out just because its close to a neighboring home or it’s in view of a neighbor’s unsightly shed – consider adding privacy.  For around $3,000, Ginger Valley Nursery can plant a row of evergreen trees along a 100 foot wide lot, creating a seven to eight foot high barrier and the privacy you desire.  In the lower photo here, you can’t see that the trees block a Walgreens pharmacy. It’s an easy and affordable way to transform an open yard into one with  year-round privacy.  For greater variety you can also stagger rows of arbor vitaes or add spruce trees.

Sometimes, people have the time to wait for the perfect house to come on the market. If you don’t have the time or patience, realize many obstacles can be overcome. They say money doesn’t grow on trees. But for a little bit of money, trees can make your yard feel like a million bucks.
