i live on a busy two lane road and am wondering how far off of it my garden needs to be... will a fence block pollutants? 20ft? 50? 100?

i planted fast growing evvergreens and also a few deciduous trees in front of my house (see my blog below) and they work beautiifully to buffer pollutants, noise and people.
