bamboo privacy screen in los angeles
I recently purchased a single-story home adjacent to a two-story fourplex in Los Angeles. I have a narrow strip of land about 12" available to plant a privacy screen that would separate my driveway from my neighbor's side yard. Bamboo appealed to me for a number of reasons. I need something 12' tall minimum that will thrive in an a strip of land that receives partial sunlight (it is south-facing and receives sunlight all day but it is near two structures on both sides). I'm leaning towards the Bambusa Multiplex or a Phyllostachys Decora -- any reason I should choose one over the other?
