Need quick suggestion for screen planting
I know this is probably a common question, but I searched and didn't come up with just what I was looking for.
I need a screen plant;
-maybe 8 - 12' tall
-as 'skinny' as practical, maybe 4' across (diameter) +/-
-they will be planted along the border of the existing 'wooded' part of our lot, so mostly shaded.
-need to be 'cheap' 'cause I may need 100 or so plants
-prefer something with minimal maintenance requirements
-fast growing would be great
Leylands are the type of thing I'm looking for, but these don't need to be near that big and I'm not sure how Leylands do in the shade.
I love the idea of Bamboo, which would be kind of unique. But, I don't want anything invasive and, again, the shade may be a problem.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
