Evergreen backdrop for perennial bed?
I have a new perennial/shrub bed that was just started this spring. It is located on the north side of my sizeable yard with a 90 acre farm field behind it. We built a stone retaining wall on the north side of the bed to make the resulting planting area level and more easily visible from the deck. I feel I need some sort of backdrop (instead of the soybean field) to make everything a little more visible and protect things from the strong north wind out here in the country. Would emerald green arbovitae work? Any other suggestions?
