I have a very shady backyard and no privacy. I have chain link fence that runs around my back yard. What bushes or whatever can I put back ther so that I can have some privacy? Something fast growing is preferable. Thank you Gina

The site you describe presents some challenges, but I think you'll be happy with Viburnum, Pieris, Kalmia, Kerria, Aronia, hollies (Ilex), Spruce, boxwood, Hamamelis, or Chionanthus. As an added bonus, these plants are reasonably deer resistant (if that is an issue). All will grow well under shady conditions. Best wishes with your landscape!
