Grow your own oasis and personal space with privacy hedges, vines and trees. Using plants for privacy and screening is a popular way to enhance your garden and property. Our plants for privacy and screening give you lots of options—from flowering shrubs and vines to evergreen bushes and trees. Before buying plants for privacy and screening, consider your space and your primary goal. Evergreen plants can provide privacy year-round, while deciduous plants drop their leaves in the fall. In addition to providing privacy, flower shrubs and vines add pops of color to the landscape—and some attract pollinators. After determining your primary goal for the space, consider the plant's hardiness zone, light requirements, soil requirements, mature height and spread, and bloom time.
