Looking for a residential privacy screen rec. for Zone 6/7
I am looking for a privacy screen recommendation for my back yard. We just built an IPE deck (beautiful Brazilain hardwood) and are looking to add a privacy screen to block out the house behind us. Some info:
We are just outside Baltimore MD. The area would be 40-50 feet long and I would like to keep it as narrow as possible so I could keep a decent amount of space between my property line and my deck. This is a residential community so I would like something that actually looks classy, (the HOA would have a fit)not like a weed. I am looking for something that would grow rather quickly (the house behind us is elevated a bit) and have a nice dense structure year round if possible. The area gets lots of direct mid afternoon sun but would be shaded by my house from about 4pm on in the summer. I hate the look of evergreens and would like to try some bamboo if possible.
Thanks for your help.
