We live in Aptos near the ocean. However, what you suggest to plant near our fence to screen out the one story house behind us. They have a large tree near in their backyard that sits against our fence but it dosen't screen out looking into each others houses. Do you have a suggestion on what I should plant to hide the fence but would also act as a privacy bush which would be about 1 foot highter than the fence so we can both have some privacy? I would like something evergreen and flowering if possible.
Mr. Smarty Plants isn't sure how tall your plant needs to be since you didn't say how tall your fence is but, hopefully, at least some of these following evergreen plants native to Santa Cruz County, California will meet the requirement:
