Hedge/Screen for Street..

gsuarezJuly 29, 2012

I have a about 100ft of lot that lines up against a fairly busy street corner with sidewalks in Los Angeles, that I am looking to plant a hedge along. Any suggestions for plant types? Hedge would (eventually) need to be fairly tall (maybe 6-7ft), not too thick( maybe 2-3 ft), ideally fast growing, but not too invasive as far as roots, etc. I am looking for that privacy/curb appeal that may compensate for the street somewhat. Thanks for any thoughts.

Podocarpus. Check with your nursery supplier for the exact species; it might be gracilior.
