Privacy Screen : retaining wall
Any suggestions on trees/shrubs that would work when planted next to retaining wall?
My house is next to apartments. One of the apartment units is above a garage so they have a direct view into my yard.
I'd like to achieve privacy and shade without compromising the structural integrity of our retaining wall.
The problem is that my house is at a higher elevation than my neighbors, with a 4 ft. retaining wall. The pic I attached shows the retaining wall from the neighbor's view/plane. The right side of the pic shows my view/plane from my backyard to my neighbors.
Dimensions: Length of fence is about 64 ft. Width of side yard from my house to the fence is about 12 ft.
The apartment unit above the garage, which is my biggest privacy concern, is about 17 feet in height.
Side yard location: South
Soil: My best guess, I would say it's tightly compacted and clay like.
