Plant screenings and hedges block out unpleasant external sights and sounds that
would otherwise impinge upon the senses. They also screen your movements from the
prying eyes of neighbors.  Even good neighbors don't enjoy feeling obligated to wave
"Hello" every time they step outside, as if needing permission before continuing on
their business.
The best news is that a screening that hides traffic, unsightly structures, neighbors, etc.,
can substantially increase your property value!
