Can you make a recommendation for a suitable plants to act a screen between properties. The area runs along our driveway and receives full sun.

Thank you

Leyland cypress is an excellent choice for the site you describe. Naylor's Blue Leyland Cypress grows 30'-40' high and 10'-15' wide, with a pyramidal form. (Thick at the bottom, tapering upwards.) 'Castlewellan' grows 25'-40' high and 8'-10' wide with a narrow, upright form. Both are considered fast growing. Your ultimate choice will depend upon the size and shape of the view you want to block.
