I picked up 5 boxwoods today to plant infront of my home.  They were fairly inexpensive, but probably because they were only about 8″ high.  It will take some time for them to get to a reasonable height so it can provide some privacy in the front yard.  The hope is to have them grow and trim them so they can have a creative shape.  I have seen some really nice landscaping where they have made very creative shapes and representative animals.  I’ll leave them alone till after fall/winter and look to see if they need any trimming during the spring.
