Fast Growing, Privacy Hedge for a 'Modern' Landscape
We are looking to plant a hedge along our property line between our retaining wall and our neighbors fence (we recently removed some ugly dated shrubs and pine trees and it has left a big gap in the yard) Our property sits higher than theirs, so the hedge will be in this ditch between their fence and our retaining wall.
We are going for a "modern" landscape design, as our house was built in the early 1970s and has a very 70s feel to it.
We would love to find something that is fast growing and provides privacy.
We live in the SF Bay Area, north bay, zone 16 and get lots of warm sunny days.
Someone recommended Waxy Leaf Privet or Lugustrum. Another option would be silver sheen pittosporum, but that might take a while to grow. Thanks for any suggestions.
