When planning one of these “living walls,” study the location for potential conflicts – overhead power lines, rights of way, obstructed views. You don’t want to plant a screen that in two years may brush utility lines or block your neighbor’s view when backing out of the driveway. One advantage to evergreen screens is that — unlike with fences — most cities don’t impose height restrictions (But check anyway!).

Think beyond fall. Evergreens are an essential component of any four-season landscape, and as much as this garden is stunning in autumn we can see the structural bones of the garden ready to exert their influence. From dwarf pine trees, including Japanese black pine (Pinus thunbergii ‘Thunderhead’, hardy to -20°F) and dwarf Siberian pine (Pinus pumila ‘Blue Dwarf’, hardy to -30°F), to prostrate forms of deodar cedar (Cedrus deodara ‘Snow Sprite’, hardy to 5°F and Cedrus deodara ‘Feelin’ Blue’) and mounding evergreen shrubs such as the multihued Gulf Stream heavenly bamboo (Nandina domestica ‘Gulf Stream’, hardy to -10°F), this design promises winter beauty.

Mondo Grass – (Ophiopogon japonicus) Adapted to zones 5 to 9, this evergreen ground cover is a perfect way to achieve a no-grass lawn. Opt for regular mondo grass, which grows up to 6 inches tall, or choose dwarf mondo grass, just 2 inches tall, and never mow again. If you choose regular mondo grass, mow it annually in late winter to keep it filled in and healthy.

The smaller grass in the foreground is blue oat grass, Helictotrichon sempervirens, which is an evergreen sun-loving grass that demands good drainage but is otherwise unfussy. The only maintenance blue oat grass needs is to have its foliage combed every few months to remove the beige leaves.
