(Isn't this the prettiest picture? I don't know where I found it, is that illegal to post it on my blog? I hope the po-po don't come get me)
Here's my dilemma. We have a 6 foot privacy fence in our backyard and the man behind us is raising doves or love birds or something. His cages in his yard are, well, ghetto looking from our view. I need to know something I can plant to shield the view. I want it to be green all year (aka EVERGREEN for the pro's familiar with the lingo). I want something fast growing too.
I would love to grow clump growing Bamboo. There are 2 types of Bamboo-the kind with runners that shoot new sprouts up to 10 feet under ground (you do not want to plant this in a neighborhood or the Property's Owner Association will come find you)...then there is the clump growing kind that blooms where it is planted. I like how tall it is and the green leaves are real wispy when the wind blows. You like that?
Holly Tree maybe?
I don't think I like Cypress looking stuff.
And I want something very affordable.
I do hope some green thumber will read this and come to my rescue.
