Friend of mine was looking for advice and I wasn't able to provide it right away.
Looking for a collective wisdom :-)
Situation: two-story townhouse condo in z7 (Long Island, NY). Large wooden balcony(5x8') with a standard 54" high railing all around. Two neighbor's identical balconies are about 7-8' apart on a left and on a right. Sun from sunrise till 11:30am and then again from 4pm till dusk. Community charter prohibits to built/install any kind of permanent structures (trellises/awnings etc) on a balconies, but she wants a privacy from the sides neighbors!
So far I have only one idea in a rough and I'm not sure if it will work at all.
Idea is to have a row of pots (or one large rectangular box-container) on each side of the balcony and grow there... bamboo. I have no clue about bamboo(s), so it might not work culturaly at all, beside other obstacles.
What would you suggest?
