Cedars for a Public Park


Where I want to plant cedars is right by a sidewalk and main road where it is subject to snow build up and sand. What cedars would you recommend for these conditions? I am in Zone 4B. Also, the less pruning the better. Thank you.


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners with your inquiry.

We receive numerous questions concerning the planting of cedars for a privacy hedge. One of our earlier posts entitled Eastern Ontario White Cedars  gives the benefits of using White Cedars as a privacy hedge along with a list of other evergreens suitable for hedging.

You can also type “cedar hedges” in the search bar located to the right of the page for additional information.
