Q.Can I Mix Miscanthus Sinensis And Blue Point Juniper On A Property Line
I would like to plant several Miscanthus and several junipers interchanged. Do you think that will look pretty? I have 13 junipers and 25 Miscanthus. What do you suggest?

If you search the internet for "living fences" you will see many examples and get some more ideas. Then make several sketches of possible layouts. For example, I saw some that were staggered, instead of a straight line.
You can also group them such as three junipers, then five grasses, etc. Or since the junipers will eventually be taller than the grasses, you could put all the junipers together starting in the middle, then stagger grasses in front of them. Whatever is left of the grasses could go on each end of the junipers. Lots of possibilities. Or starting in the center, line up junipers with a grass in between and whatever grasses are left could go on the sides or the front, depending on how long the property line is.
