Spreading Juniper photos
Photographs of Junipers used as a groundcover to cover steep banks or to fill-in around taller shrubs
Junipers are known for their fast growth, adaptation to poor soil and low maintenance requirements.
These evergreen plants are usually spaced three to four feet apart (on center) with every other row being staggered for better, more even cover.
For faster fill-in of a planting area, closer spacing requires more plants but provides faster cover of a planting area.
Required number of plants to cover 100 square feet:
Plant spacing / Number of plants
per 100 square feet (10′ x 10′)
6-inch centers / 400 plants
1-foot centers / 100 plants
2-foot centers / 25 plants
3-foot centers / 11 plants
4-foot centers / 6 plants
