Attractive native hedge?
Help! One week after we purchased our house last year, the house behind us burned to the ground. Our house is on the corner of two smallish streets. The house behind had the front of theirs facing the street. They rebuilt it so that their backyard is facing our backyard.
The previous owners of our home planted arborviti about one-third of the way across the property line of the backyard. We really need to put something at least six feet in height to give us privacy. Not very partial to arborviti but they're pretty tall now.
Can I plant something on the remaining two-thirds of the property line that's not arborviti? I'd hate to have to plant the same seeing that I'm not a big fan of them.Natives are a first choice. And, something the wildlife might also enjoy would be great.
Thank you for any ideas. I very much appreciate it.
