The screen is flanked by a pair of Oriental arborvitae. The other plants are identified in the diagram and list at right.

If you'd like to create a similar screen, fall is an ideal time to plant conifers from containers. After planting, soak the rootballs and water as needed to keep them damp until fall rains take over. When new growth begins next spring, feed the plants with a controlled-release fertilizer.
