I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Some good options to hide the fence are 'Bright N Tight' Cherry Laurel, 'Little Gem' Magnolia and Southern Wax Myrtle. For color in front you might try dwarf crape myrtles or 'Knock Out' Roses (make a good hedge and can be left unpruned or sheared periodically if you wish).
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
