Money-Saving Tips for 'Living' Privacy Screens

Installing a fence isn’t cheap, but the cost of a real-life one made of shrubs and bushes can fly off the charts.

Traditional fencing for a 70-by-90-foot lot could run $3,000 to $5,000, depending on materials, reports HouseLogic. Privacy screening plants for the entire perimeter easily could cost double that, especially if you use a landscaper.

That’s why it’s critical for homeowners to spend wisely when planning to install a living privacy screen. Tweet a free article, Add a Living Privacy Screen to Your Small Home, from the REALTOR® Content Resource. It’s one of four free articles now available in the August “Don’t Be on the Fence with Fencing” article package.

You can also tweet (or post to your website, blog, or Facebook page; e-mail; add to your e-newsletter; or brand, print, and hand-deliver) any of about 1,000 always-free home listing, selling, and ownership articles. Just search the REALTOR® Content Resource by keyword or topic for other content ranging from home improvement and maintenance to taxes and finance.
