Creating an informal evergreen mixed border for privacy..
I have a huge project and need some help! I would like to plant an evergreen mixed border hedge and planning on the shrubs reaching about 5 to 8 feet tall. The two rail fence line is 143 feet long at the front of the property and borders a busy road; the front yard recieves full sun.
I have purchased some one gallon shrubs; three varieties of rhodys (sun tolerant), Mountain Fire Pieris and Common Boxwood. My first concern is if will the boxwood will blend in with the pieris and rhodys. Since this is such a long stretch of fence line would it look better if I added taller evergreens at each end or maybe towards the center? I do need to purchase more shrubs so now is a good time to define my plan. Your thoughts and suggestions will be appreciated.
