Evergreen screening plants for privacy provide a very useful solution for hiding unsightly views or for providing privacy in your outside space. As a result, screening plants tend to be tall with dense foliage!

As Mature Plant Specialists, we are used to dealing with very tall specimens, often over 3 Metres tall. In fact, here at Paramount Plants, we are probably best-known for providing Instant Living Screens. These have an immediate impact in your garden in terms of providing screening plants for privacy. We have lots of articles about the various types of privacy screening plants we can offer. For example, our Living Screening Trees as well as our Evergreen Hedges in Troughs. For an above the fence-line solution, many customers these days are looking for pleached trees and full-standard trees. Other screening favourites include evergreen bamboo for a fast-growing solution.

Eitherway, plants for privacy can transform your garden. In this section of our blog you can learn much more about the types of plants we use for various types of Privacy Screening.
