Degroot’s Spire Cedar


I am wanting to plant a row of degroot along my metal fence & in between walkway pool area…. for privacy & appearance… as u do not need to trim them … & they look natural…
I only have about a 2 ft spread …between walkway & fence … is this enough room as they can grow thru fence


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners.

‘Degroot’s Spire’ is a cultivated version of Thuja occidentalis. This cedar variety  tolerates a wide range of different soil types, and is great for high humidity areas or areas that receive lots of rain. Pruning is best done in the spring. It is frequently utilized as a  privacy screen, or as a fencing hedge in the landscape.
