Customer wants a row of lilacs planted in an area 50 feet long.....she wants 5 of them. I went to the nursery and they stand about 4 feet tall......nonetheless how far apart should I plant them....will I be able to get 5?

You can plant all five easily in 50'. Just space them equally apart.

You can place them equally apart in the 50' and you can also plant them in a straight line or in a staggered position and plant some perennials if she wants an attractive small landscape bed

50 feet will be plenty for 5 lilacs.
