Ficus 'Indian Laurel' (Ficus nitida)
The Ficus 'Indian Laurel' is one of the best medium to large shade trees you can find! Ficus nitida is native to Asia and Hawaii and is an evergreen tree ideal for growing in the Southwest. In fact, this single-trunk variety loves to grow where there's plenty of full sun exposure. Of course, one of its big selling features is its wide spreading canopy, which features lush green foliage that adds beauty to any environment. We love to plant them on any landscape that could benefit from its generous shade capability. When properly placed around a home, its canopy can provide enough shade to help cool the home, which can lead to lower utility bills and a more comfortable indoor environment during those hot days.
As great as this Indian Laurel Ficus tree is for shade, it can also add some much-needed privacy. We love to plant them around property lines, where they can block out unwanted views in style and help homeowners achieve their own private backyard paradise! After all, Ficus nitida fits well with any tropical theme landscape, so they look fantastic planted with palm trees and other plants. It has a fast growth rate, so you won't be waiting too long for it to add shade and privacy into your landscape. Best of all, once established, this drought-tolerant tree keeps its lush green appearance even in the most water-wise landscapes! Are you looking for a tree to act as a natural sound barrier? People that live near busy streets will want to plant Ficus 'Indian Laurel' trees, as it can help reduce noise, while adding some valuable curb appeal too!

Blocked Out That Ugly View!I needed to get some trees to get rid of an apartment complex they decided to build across the street from my house. I went into Moon Valley and showed them some pictures of my yard. The nursery pro Sal came out to my house the same day with the store manager and we measured everything out. They installed 25 of the Hollywood hedges in my backyard that were already 20' tall and gave me instant privacy! You would never even know there was anything behind my house now. One awesome feature of these trees is the amount of noise reduction and dust reduction I have seen in my pool. Love these trees and will be buying some more palms soon to finish my landscape.
Saved My PoolBefore having these trees planted by Moon Valley I had my neighbors literally staring directly into my yard. I bought 20' trees and now have the absolute privacy that no fence would have ever been approved by the city of San Clemente. The whole experience was super simple, and more importantly the Hollywood Hedge is healthy and happy!
I LOVE THE HOLLYWOOD HEDGE!!!I had an annoying neighbor who used to peak over into my back yard and I planted a Hollywood Hedge and now I have great privacy. These hedges are so clean, thick, and green! Thank you Moon Valley for growing these beautiful trees
