hide fence-continious hedge or various plantings?
I have an ugly chain link fence across my shallow back yard. My husband thinks planting a row of one type of tall evergreen tree/shrubs will provide a "frame" that I can plant my "various" plants in fron of. I think we should start out with a variety of plants since the back yard is not very deep anyway and also planting a long hedge of anything will not be cheap and will cut into the budget for the "front" plantings. I say chocolate, he says vanilla - how do we compromise?
