My wife and i would like to plant some cedar hedges in our backyard. There would be a lot of ground to cover (about 150 feet) and cost is of concern. We don't want to spend too much, but we also don't want to go on the cheap and suffer the consequences. We're thinking of going with a local company (i'm in Ottawa by the way) that sells White Cedar (or Wild Cedar as is locally known) grown in Peterborough Ontario. They sell them, installed, at 16/tree. Great price, but our concern is with the type of cedar. Is the White Cedar considered a good choice for hedges, in that, they provide a good looking, thick, private hedge? Or are they difficult to grow? We live in an area that is high in sand, so they would be planted in a mix of soil and sand. I understand they require a lot of water, and that's okay i don't mind watering them but i am concerned that the look and the thickness will be difficult to achieve. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
