Innovative Privacy Screens
In the big scheme of things, I know my problem isn't going to make or break the rest of the world but here goes.
My next door neighbor is a slob. Junk all over the back yard, front yard, etc. etc.
I've installed a privacy screen in the front along with heavenly bamboo and other plantings . The back yard, surrounded by a chain fence with old growth trees, is a new challenge.
I have big plans for a beautiful garden and I'd like to find an innovative way to screen the mess off. Arrow bamboo has been suggested, along with other bamboo. I'm open to any plant suggestions that will make the project happen this season.
The length to screen is about 40-50 ft. and it does get full sun about 4-5 hours a day, the rest of the day it's partial shade.
I have considered the same type of screen that is in the front as well as other fencing that will take care of the problem. I'm just looking for alternate ways of dealing with this.
Polite suggestions that the yard is a dump have not been effective. Since I installed the front screen about a year ago, neighbors haven't spoken to me, not that I really care. There are no local laws or by-laws that govern this type of thing.
Finally, I am the of person that tries to see good in anything that I encounter. The only good thing that I can come up with is that the yard is left to go to hell during the growing season, and the grass and weeds cover everything up so it's not as noticeable.
Thanks for your help!
