Privacy Trees in Full Shade
Hi - I have zero experience in gardening. I live in Springfield VA and the house behind me is very unsightly. I blindly tried planting Leland Cyprus trees but I have little to no sun. I checked the shadow line hourly one day in the summer and verified little to no direct sun. The 60 year old community was built around very large trees. Is there a shade friendly tree I can use to add privacy/ block the view? I like the shape of a Crape Myrtle, but I know that is not an option. I don't particularly want an evergreen, I would rather something that my 16 month old can eventually run around and I will still be able to do some light yard work around.
