When friends know you are a gardener, they often ask for advice that sometimes you can't answer as fully as you'd like. I was asked by this homeowner what could work for a screen, not a line of evergreens or a dense one, along the side of their home. This is a tough situation to work with and I need some help/ideas.
(above) This is the main view (from a screened porch/out a door) where the screen is desired. It is facing south, but very shady due to all of the trees. It also has a very narrow, steep slope to work with. Below are photos of the slope. The property line is about the bottom of the slope. Again the screen doesn't have to be a dense one, just something(s) to break up the view.
