shrubs/bushes to plant along a fence????
We are putting up a split rail fence between our yard and our neighbours. I'm not sure of what type of shrubs/bushes would be best to plant. The fence will be @ 40' long. I want plants that will compliment the fence not hide it, maybe something in a natural state(not pruned)loosely planted. Some privacy would be good with a maximum height of 6' and minimum of @ 4'. We want to be able to see the fence in between the plants, sort of a natural type of setting. Probably a mix of evergreen and deciduous. Overall we are going with a front yard that has a natural feel to it with artificial stone over the concrete wallof the house, some arrangement of large rocks, and a corner fence made of split rail, flagstone walkway/patio etc. Plants along the fence will be in full sun most of the day. Does anyone have any Ideas?? One more thing, our neighbour has small children so poisonous berries is something that I want to stay away from.
