What kind of hedge or trees might work to provide privacy in our lower mainland British Columbia yard/garden? We need something evergreen that is perhaps,fast growing. Our yard is not deep and our kitchen window is only about 7 metres from a shared wooden fence. Any advice would be appreciated!
You are very lucky living in British Columbia where you have several evergreen shrubs and trees from which to choose. Actually, you are very lucky living in British Columbia because it is really beautiful there!
