I have 3 acres and the fence between me and the neighbor is an old no climb bent fence. I would like to grow a fence on my side so my dogs can't see next doo and I don't have to see them either. It needs to be fast, not fussy and in clay soil.

There are a number of evergreen plants suitable for hedging. Of the broadleaf evergreens, you might consider glossy Abelia, Callistemon (bottlebrush), Escallonia, Grevillea, Nandina, Photinia or Viburnum tinus. These shrubs produce flowers in the spring or summer and your decision to plant one of the selections might be based upon flower color. If you're more interested in a coniferous evergreen, I'd suggest Thuja (arborvitae), or spruce. These are well-behaved evergreens, drop very little litter, and do not need regular pruning to keep their size under control. Hope one of the above plants is just right for your landscape.
