full to part shade yard - need privacy along fenceline - Knowledgebase Question

My 0.20 acre yard has 9 mature trees (2 oak + 1 other in the back, 3 oak on side and 3 oak in front); therefore, my yard gets little full sun exposure. My yard is not 100% shaded throughout the day. I need privacy along my fenceline, since my deck is high enough to see over my fence. I'm not sure what I can plant that will grow fast in a mostly shade environment to provide with privacy. Help!

I'd plant aborvitae Thuja 'Green Giant'. These tall, narrow evergreens make perfect privacy screens and will grow in full sun to part shade. Best wishes with your landscape.
