With Magi Treece of Living Structures. Privacy screens are a very common New Year’s Resolution, these days thanks to all the new homes being constructed in Portland. Do you need to create a visual border or screen between your space and the new neighbors’ picture window? Or maybe you want to block out some sound from a nearby, newly-noisy road. Either way, Magi Treece will offer design ideas for a balance between sweet solitude and socialite city life. She’ll discuss proper placement and spacing, care techniques for establishing a healthy hedge, and plants that will add all kinds of aesthetic value to your yard, while also providing privacy for you, your family, and your guests. Arborvitae can be pretty, but there’s a whole world of effective and exciting plants to explore. Don’t miss out!
