As mentioned in our previous blog “Where Should I Plant My Cedars?” cedars can be planted virtually anywhere. Yes, you can plant your cedars against your house but you need to keep a few things in mind:
- Will they get enough light and water?
- Will the roots have room to grow without your house’s foundation obstructing their growth?
- Will you be able to keep them well groomed with regular trimming?
- Will they obstruct any windows or doors once they are fully grown?
If you are planting them solely for aesthetics purposes consider building or buying boxed/potted cedars. You’ll get the look you want without the hassle or worry of planting them in the ground next to your house.
