The Q&A Archives: fastest growing shrubs

Question: I would like to put in some high fast growing shrubs for background to hide a metal link fence-central coastal n.j. thanks

Answer: Plants generally take a year to settle in, become rooted and begin to grow so you may want to consider buying fairly large sized plants. If you simply want a fast growing evergreen you might try Leyland cypress. If you want a deciduous plant, forsythia and privet grow very fast and can reach a large size in just a few years.
