|Guess I don't have any good pics of the road, but here you can see it in the top left hand corner of this pic (taken around 4th of July). The trees will be in a line to the left.|
|Isn't this gorgeous? We're not planting that many and I'll never have that nice of a backyard, but one can dream, right?|

Emerald Green Arborvitae's were half off at Home Depot so we bought 21 to create a staggered privacy screen.

|We sprinkled in some Vigoro Tree, Shrub, and Evergreen Fertilizer into each hole (great reviews) and also used some new topsoil. It's important to dig the hole twice as wide as the root ball, but not too deep. Your hole should only be as deep as the root ball.|
|It's recommended that you space arborvitaes 2'-3' apart. We spaced ours 4' apart because we're going to plant a second row in front to fill in the open spaces.|
We got the back row (11 trees) planted yesterday. On to the front row (10 more) sometime later this week. Volunteers welcome! Whenever you plant new trees - water, water, water!
