Another Screen Question - a bit different though
My wife and I are looking for a recommendation for what we should use as a privacy screen in our back yard. Unfortunately, the requirements are really driven by the need to block a neighborhood of poorly maintained, smelly aerobic septic systems to our south (wind is of course almost always from the south here).
-We are near Greenville so it gets very hot and dry and we have black gumbo clay which is very prone to cracking.
-We have about a 200' line that needs to be covered so cost is an issue (unfortunately)
-Would like the height to be 10-12' or more and screen all the way to the ground, or very close to it. We are trying to block all the wind we possibly can.
At this point, we really don't even care how pretty it is. We just want to do our best to block the smell and occasional nasty mist from these aerobic septic systems so that our children can play outside without us having to rush them indoors every time one goes off. We have even considered the mountain cedar (ashe Juniper) regardless of the allergy problems it creates.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
