Privacy, Screening & Buffer Trees
Sometimes we just need privacy, especially in our yards. Not interested in expensive fencing that needs yearly maintenance? Consider adding a ‘live’ wall to your yard with privacy trees, screening trees and buffer trees. Trees can create a beautiful and natural screen full of blooms and foliage that are eye-catching instead of being an eyesore. From White Pine to fast growing Leyland Cypress and Nellie Stevens Holly to stunning Emerald Green Arborvitae and Giant Green Arborvitae, we have the privacy trees that are perfect for your landscape. Create a privacy screen that will bring beauty to your yard year after year while giving you the privacy buffer from your neighbors that you crave!
Stop by the nursery today and pick out the best privacy, screening and buffer trees for your yard. Out of the area? You can purchase these trees from our online store, Garden Goods Direct.
Evergreen trees deliver year round color, as well as providing a privacy or screen alternative to expensive fencing and can block wind, provide shade, and reduce your heating and cooling bills. Evergreen privacy trees are typically needled and broad-leafed and come in a wide range of colors, from hunter green to silvery blue, yellow, copper, gray-green, blue-green, chartreuse, as well as plants with variegated foliage. Choose from Arborvitae, Cryptomeria, Thuja, Pine, Cedar, Cypress and more. While many traditional living walls sport dark hued plants, a golden or silver-blue conifer can add winter interest into a perennial bed, particularly when blooms have disappeared for the season.
Whatever the season, whatever the weather conditions, our supply of evergreens provide a bit of color and can create the perfect screen from unsightly views. These trees make a great addition to anyone looking for a hardy, long lasting investment. From Bag & Burlap Firs, to Container sized Pines and Spruces, Patuxent is the place to come.

Want to add some cool beauty to your landscape? We sell fast growing shade trees that are best for shade and screening, as well as ornamental beauty. Choose from Sycamore, Poplar, Maple, Chestnut, Beech and more.
Protecting our homes from the sun during the summer can end up saving us both money and energy and this can be easily achieved by strategic use of trees for shade around our homes. These shade trees block the sun from streaming in our windows and heating our walls and roofs during certain times of the day and you can create comfortable outdoor spaces by placing shade trees near your patio or deck.
Shade trees come in all shapes and sizes so there are plenty of options to choose from, stop by Patuxent Nursery to see our selection. Not in the area? You can purchase shade trees from Garden Goods Direct, our online store.
Flowering & Ornamental Trees
We’re lucky enough to have an array of gorgeous species, grown & delivered seasonally to meet out customers highest standards. If names like Yoshino Cherry, Crape Myrtle and Southern Magnolia ring any bells, you’ve found the right place. We host a large variety of species and sizes, suitable to jobs big and small. Talk to anyone on our staff and we’ll be sure to lend a hand or two in fitting your property with the perfect trees.
Flowering trees transform your garden with mature trees providing beauty and grandeur, while small flowering trees sparkle with life and promise. They lure us outdoors to walk a bit and enjoy the beauty of the season. The best flowering trees attract pollinators such as bees, and fruits feed birds and small creatures. At every season, they frame and shape the garden.
Ornamental trees brighten up any landscape with vivid colors in the spring and fall and sweeten the air with fragrant flowers. An ornamental tree can offer a focal point for your garden and add year-round beauty to a garden.
When choosing flowering and ornamental trees, think beyond spring to those that blossom in summer or early fall, so there is always something in bloom to enjoy. Consider also interesting leaf shapes, handsome woody structure, showy fall color, and bright berries.
Check out our huge selection of flowering and ornamental trees at Patuxent Nursery. You can also purchase these trees at our online store, Garden Goods Direct.
We sell a wide variety of edibles, such as apple and pear trees and blackerry, strawberry, blueberry and raspberry bushes. In the Spring, Summer and Fall, we have a wide variety of herbs such as basil, chives, cilantro, citronella, dill, parsley, rosemary and thyme. Our vegetable selection is vast. Some of our veggies are cucumber, eggplant, melons, peppers, squash and tomatoes.
Patuxent Nursery is proud to sell American Chestnut Trees as well. Once beautiful and abundant, the American chestnut tree covered huge tracts of land across the eastern United States for thousands of years until a fungus (blight) from Asia decimated virtually every tree standing on North American soil. After nearly 70 years of absence, the American chestnut is poised to make a comeback, thanks in part to the Dunstan Chestnut. The blight-resistant Dunstan Chestnut Tree is easy to grow and they thrive in a wide variety of areas.
