front yard hedge - where do I start?
I have a 1970s ranch home that is on a private, road with no sidewalk in front. Our yard basically grows up, into, the side of the road. Currently there is a very rickety wooden fence (about 3-4 feet tall) that runs the length of the yard. It is rotten and looks terrible. I would like to replace it with a hedge that will run the length of the yard (70 feet). It will not get watered after it is established. It is on the south side, so it gets sun. I am looking for something that will not be more than 5 feet so I can still see out to the road from my front window. I would possibly like something with some color, but my top priority is low maintence, fairly dense growing that will quickly be about 5 feet tall. I am totally new to landscaping, so I feel very lost. Thank you for any suggestions you may have!
