Hardy Privacy Evergreen

The Techny Arborvitae is a hardy evergreen conifer.  Buy several to form a living privacy hedge for your property or just one for a planter.
 
The Arborvitae will enhance your yard with light green color in the spring and dark green in the summer.  It has delightful flat, fan-shaped foliage that stays green year-round and is flexible to the touch.  In fact, you’ll likely enjoy the soft texture of the Techny and be tempted to “pet” it often. 
 
Your Techny’s compact, upright pyramidal shape provides an excellent accent or backdrop for other plantings.  It will grow 15-20 feet tall with a 6-10 foot spread, and you can easily prune it to your desired shape.
 
The Techny Arborvitae is one of the most hardy of the arborvitae, withstanding more cold and drought than other Arborvitaes.  It can even live in a pot on your patio.  No need for you to even mulch it as it drops its year’s previous growth in the fall.
 
Arborvitaes have long been valued for their many stellar features.  They provide nesting, cover and food for wildlife.  They’re a living windbreak, and the harvested wood makes everything from fence posts to furniture.  Parts of the Arborvitae are even used medicinally.
 
For a carefree, hardy Arborvitae, the Techny is an exceptional choice.
