Outdoor Noise Blocking Plants

Outdoor Noise Blocking Plants

Many people choose to add a fence to a property is to increase privacy in a yard or to block street/road noise. Depending on your property this may or may not completely work. If you are trying to block out noise then you can use noise blocking plants. Evergreen shrubs make the best plants for noise because they provide year-round noise reduction. Broadleaf evergreens are more effective than narrow-leaf plants and conifers. Native plants make excellent noise reduction bushes because they require little irrigation and have a strong resistance to local pests. When choosing bushes, it is also convenient to choose plants that require little care in terms of fertilization and pruning. Deer resistance and growth rate are other factors to consider. You can check whether a specific type of evergreen bush will grow well in your yard by considering the amount of light the area gets and sending a sample of your soil in for testing in a nursery or university laboratory.

Combine form and function by using plants along a wall. When the plants don’t reduce noise enough, try adding sounds that mask unpleasant noises. Flowing water is very effective at masking unpleasant noise. A garden fountain or waterfall is well worth the time and expense of installation. Weatherproof speakers allow you to add soothing sounds to the garden too. Many are designed to mimic natural garden features such as rocks.
