Evergreen Privacy Walls For Landscaping In Georgia

As a Remax Realtor, working in the Area of North Atlanta GA, we are selling homes and listing homes everyday.
One of the big questions we get when showing a homes is,

“What do you suggest we plant for a privacy wall in this back yard”?

Privacy Walls With Plants
When I first moved here to Georgia, I joined the Cherokee Master Gardeners and it was a great idea. The classes taught everyone a little bit about a lot of topics. From grass to Georgia native plants, to the best maintenance free shrubs to composting and fertilizing.

Anyway, back to the subject of this Blog, What resources are available and what plants to use to establish a Living Wall, instead of building a fence for privacy.

First, Here are a few resources that I found, instead of coping what they have to say. Keep in mind, the state of Georgia has a few Zones to consider (Zones 7, 8 and 9), so I have attached a Map for your reference as well. Happy Planting!

First time home buyer?
Some things you should know and consider before making one of the biggest investments and decisions in your life!

Credit scores are a big factor in getting a home mortgage today. We advise clients to be above 640 before aggressively looking for a home. Why 640? 640 is the lowest score most banks offer Before major increases to mortgage interest rates and most banks won’t lend under 640.
You want to wait until you get to 640 before applying.

Banks use your middle score. So your high score and low score are “thrown out” and the middle score is the score used to price your loan and qualify you.

How to Improve Scores? In general you want to have no more than 1-2 credit cards. You should never charge more than 50% of the total allowable spending limit at any time. So if your total limit is $10,000 on a credit card, never spend more than $5,000 on it and make sure you pay it down each month.
