Help me with ideas to screen neighboring yard?
Here's the situation:
My backyard borders to an industrial property and I would like to screen the view. To cover the view completely, I would need something about 12 feet high and about 25 feet wide.
I've got my city's maximum 6 foot tall fence. The problem is that this area is under a very large tree and I'm not aware of a living hedge that tolerates absolute full shade. I've got a small yard, so I don't want to divide up my backyard but would prefer a screen near the fence.
Any ideas? I'm open to any plants, structures, etc.
