Question by christian_sa

I am a Smyrna GA resident and would like easy to maintain plants at least 4 ft tall in height. Hopefully plants that will block my dogs to see neighbour's dog. Any idea? I have a wooded backyard with some shade.

Thanks for your help

Hedge plants that will grow in the shade are limited and the rate of growth will be reduced, but one of the easiest to grow is Fortunes Osmanthus. Others that could work are Southern wax myrtle, Florida leucothoe, small anise and Mary Nell holly. All are evergreen and will grow in shade. All can be pruned to control height.

Best wishes with your new plants!
