Planting Privacy Shrubs under Pine Trees - Is it Possible?
Our house is surrounded on all sides by evergreen trees for privacy, as we have a pool. The problem is that in the back, the trees are pine trees with very sparse (or no) foliage near the bottom, and as such do not provide much privacy. Are there any kinds of bushes that grow thick and tall that we can plant in an area that is shady, and in pine-needle covered soil? There is not enough room to plant anything in front of the trees, only underneath. The area does get some sun, mostly in the afternoon, but for the most part it's shady.
Any help would be really, really appreciated - I don't even know if such a plant exists, but if it does, I'd love to know about it!
