Just Looking, Tennessee
Thanks for all the suggestions. We're going ahead w/ putting in 30 5 ft. tall Leland Cypress trees along our back border to restore the privacy & provide shade( Originally there was total privacy w/ trees and a cotton field and now we're looking at barren land and 6 houses behind us.) Our house is completely upgraded w/ exotic hardwood floors, granite, SS appliances, tumbled marble baths, 3 fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, custom closets, cherry cabinets, etc. so I don't think we could possibly upgrade anymore and make a difference. That being said we feel the trees will be well worth it to restore privacy from our new neighbors in our large backyard.
