Viburnum Burkwoodii 'Mohawk' grows 8' tall and 10' wide at maturity. You can plant these shrubs on 5' centers to create a dense hedge. (a total of 5 plants will fill your 27' long planting bed) Escallonia 'Fradesii' has a mounding growth habit reaching 5-6' tall and wide. You can plant these on 4' centers for a dense screening hedge. You'll need 7 escallonias. These are common shrubs and should be readily available in one of the following local nurseries:
