small evergreens for shelter in hedgerow
I have a narrow strip (4 ft wide and 15 feet long) along the side of the house and I am thinking of making it into an evergreen hedgerow that will provide birds with shelter in the winter and maybe even berries. Any suggestions on what to plant. The plants can't get wider than 4 feet or there won't be any room to walk. Cedar-apple rust is a big problem in my neighborhood so is it wise to plant any junipers (will they survive and berry without any pesticides)? Thank you.
