Privacy barrier between two fences?
Our property is lined by a 6' high brick wall.
Our next door neighbor has a 4' chain link fence that is about 14" from our brick wall.
The space between these fences is my responsibility, and I would like to plant a row of plants that would create a dense privacy barrier between my house and theirs.
We have coverage for the first 6 feet with the wall, but I want to create privacy above the brick wall. Ideally, the plant would be 10-15' tall.
My first thought was bamboo, but I don't know much about it. I am concerned that it would become out of control.
Here is some other information that might help:
- zone 9
- full sun
- cannot require maintenance for bottom 6'
- no irrigation
- shouldn't have anything sharp on it, since his boat ramp is adjacent to the fence in one area.
- don't want root system to interrupt our brick wall footers, or his boat ramp
Thanks for helping with this -- I am stumped!
