The Q&A Archives: covering a chain link fence in Florida

Question: I live in Southeast Florida and would like to plant some type of shrub or hedge that will grow tall to completely obscure a chain link fence that surrounds my property. The fence is completely in the open and gets full sun, and part of it runs along a lake, w/ about 2 feet separating the fence and the water's edge. what can I plant that will grow quickly but not require a huge amount of maintenance? Any suggestions would be great! thanks!

Answer: Noah,

Some options are 'Bright N Tight' Carolina Cherry Laurel, Ixora, and Oleanders (may be large but dwarf types are available too).

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
