Conifers for tight space


Hi, I email you earlier for a deciduous tree for a tight space and thank you for your advice and recommendations!

Hi, I live in Toronto, ON. I have a rather small backyard (40ft x 25ft)

Do you have any low maintenance conifers as a privacy hedge from the neighbours? I would like something that has non-invasive roots to protect the fence posts from shifting/uprising to protect patio interlocking pavers. My preference is columnar type narrow trees with foliage above the fence line. I have a 4ft gap between the fence and my patio. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks for your help!


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners with your question regarding evergreen hedging.  We have a Garden Guide dedicated to this subject, which I have attached in the link below.  The guide provides details regarding several coniferous species including their expected height and spread along with planting information and growing requirements.    Best of luck with this project!
