Suggestions for tall growing shrub/tree as a hedge to near by win
I posed this message in landscaping forum. I am in Dallas. Please help me to come up with tree/plant for my needs.
I am planning to plant tall growing shrubs/trees to get a privacy hedge from backside window facing my yard/patio. I am looking at Savanna holly, Neville Holly, Wax myrtle and Ligustrum wax leaf.
I am not able to decide on something. I went to nursery and looked at them. This nursery has some of them in smaller size. So, I can transport and plant my self. I got very expensive quotes from landscaper.
One idea is to grow Holly (Savanna or Neville) with 3'-4' gap and let them grow tall and narrow. They will make a hedge at the top (10' - 15' height).
Other idea is to plant wax myrtle / Ligustrum Wax leaf and grow them like a tree. We will have space at the bottom and they cover at the top.
I have received suggestions to plant Italian cypress and other conifers. But they might not form a hedge at the top.
Please let me know your suggestions.
