Good Neighbor Hedge
I would like to plant a small (~6' long) hedge-type plant on the "good neighbor" side of my yard (next to the bricks in the picture). The boy next door plays soccer, so anything delicate would not work. This bed will have mostly perennials in it, and gets bright shade for half the day, sun for the other half. The soil seems to be medium-weight, and everything I've planted so far has been happy. The purpose of the hedge-type plants would be to keep the soccer balls from decapitating other plants in the bed, plus to give just a little delineation to the lots. Something that matures at 3-4' tall would be nice, as would flowers. I was thinking of Rugosas, but don't want the little guy to get unnecessarily scraped up. Any suggestions? Thank you!
