What Can I Plant for a Privacy Hedge?

What Can I Plant For Privacy?

Does your neighbor have an unsightly yard? Or maybe you would like more privacy? For information about planting a privacy hedge or screen, click the link above. We would like to point out that we have compared the plants on this list to the Common Poisonous Plants to Livestock list, but please note that the information contained in our lists is not meant to be all-inclusive. Be advised that the consumption of any plant material may cause vomiting and gastrointestinal upset for dogs and cats.

If you believe that your animal is ill or may have ingested a poisonous substance, contact either your local veterinarian or the Animal Poison Control 24-hour emergency poison hotline at 1-888-426-4435.
