What do you recommend for a six foot wide by fifteen to twenty foot long area between gardens to screen us from a neighbor's deck ten feet above the level of our garden? (The level of the deck is the base level - when they stand up they are about fifteen feet above our base level). Thank you.

Selecting tall, narrow screening plants can be a challenge. The most popular plants for screening include Red maple (Acer rubrum Bowhall'), Freeman maple (Acer x freemanii 'Armstrong'), Nellie Stevens holly (Ilex x 'Nellie R. Stevens'), Rocky Mountain juniper (Juniperus scopulorum 'Mountbatten' or 'Skyrocket'), Eastern white pine (Pinus strobus 'Fastigiata'), or Thuja 'Pyramidalis'. All are moderate to fast growing. Hope one of these suggestions is just right for your garden!
