The Q&A Archives: Can I have a hedge in a small, Southern California Backyard?

Question: I live in the High Dessert of California. I want a privacy hedge that will grow to at least 6' tall but won't go crazy and get to over 10' if I don't watch it, or so wide it goes too far through the chain-link fence into our neighbor's yards. Is there anything that won't grow too wide, is still dense enough for privacy, and able to grow in our area?
