Our backyard has an awful view of the neighbors' apartment. Our fence can only cover-up first floor of the apartment but can be seen from the second floor apartment vice-versa. I need to know what to plant that won't take too much space since our backyard has one long narrow space. I need to get this privacy on this specific corner only. Thanks

I think your best bet is one of the upright, columnar evergreens such as arborvitae. These grow upwards of 30' but remain only about 2' wide. Skyrocket juniper is another tall, narrow evergreen. Hope these suggestions help!
