cedar shrubs

Hey there,

I would like to get cedar shrubs for my front yard to separate it from the busy street in front of my house. I'm wondering what it would cost me as an approximation and what is the best kind/size to get. Is it easy to DIY?

I'm in Montreal.

Be careful to keep sightlines. We're also on a busy street, and I make sure that anything planted within 15-20 feet of the street is low enough to see over when backing out of the driveway. Also, don't plant on the city- owned part of "your" front lawn.

Don't buy the biggest cedars from big box stores - it is tempting, but they have often been field grown and dug out with insufficient roots, and so tend to die. Buy the smaller ones, they will grow fast enough.
