Personal Space. There are few things more precious than having a private space to relax, stretch out in, breathe in, and just be yourself. 

I caught up with two of our designers, Erin Spencer and Jill Zimmerman to display some Native Edge favorites for creating a green retreat that suit your space, are responsible for the landscape, and can match your personal style.


One of the most popular and visually interesting choices for privacy is the trellis. The sturdiness of a custom metal frame creates the backbone for wide variety of vining plants. There are non-flowering choices for a consistent living wall, or for those who enjoy seasonal pops of color, there are plenty of options like crossvine, Carolina jessamine, coral honeysuckle, star jasmine and more!

Another great opportunity is to plant tall growing shrubs, like Italian cypress, junipers, viburnums, cherry laurels and the like! Pride of Barbados flowers add a bright touch of color to a lush poolside space.

For the adventurous or those looking to add to preexisting structures, there is also the option to blend more than one privacy element.

The right plantings and planning in a landscape can turn an open space into an intimate enclosure. The jewel of privacy also comes with a design opportunity, ways to preserve the openness of an outdoor living space and create a personal haven for the homeowner.
