suggestions for medium height hedge?
Our neighbor just paid for 6 gigantic pines to be cut down between our property. It is wonderful for his garden and our small pool to get the sun. However, we are now totally exposed and on top of eachother in our back yards!!!
We would like to put in some kind of privacy hedge, but not too tall - I would think 6-10 feet max. I don't know too much about hedges. I really like anything that flowers or has beautiful color - my husband is partial to evergreens. Whatever it is, it has to be winter hardy, we are in zone 4 in central NY.
boxwood too short?
burning bush too short and too sparce?
rose hedge too short?
a mix of flowering shrubs and perennials too sparce for privacy?
I would love any ideas. Creative is good. I really like flowers and color - but it does need to serve it's purpose of providing a medium height screen. Thanks for your input!!!!
