Advice on Back Border
Need help with back border. Been looking at it too long. Want to cover UGLY electrical lines and blur horizon so it's more of a private feel in back yard. But then we'll also lose some "borrowed" landscape and color from the trees beyond.
This is what we have in pic:
-Enclosed backyard by 5' tall picket fence (fence not visible but exists behind row of forsythia)
-Adjacent sides (not visible) planted with trees & evergreens - Hawthorne, Gr Giants, Var.Hollies, Rhodeys, hydrangea, boxwood & more forsythia.
-Measures 130 ft across back border corner to corner
-Row of forsythia - now green (visible) along entire border
-Left corner (not visible in pic) 30' tall Blue Atlas Cedar to left of small Purple Plum (visible) and blue lacrosse wall.
-Middle of border (visible-covering pole) Oct Glory Maple
-Right corner (visible but young) Yellowbird Magnolia
-There is approx 130 ft between me taking pic (on patio) and Oct Glory Maple tree.
Initial thought: plant 2 groupings of 3 evergreens on either side of Oct Glory Maple against fence...each grouping containing 2 Yoshino Cryptomerias or Green Giants (which we have on adjacent sides of yard) and 1 of a different type evergreen, not decided....??
Not opposed to removing forsythia to make room for plants that will serve an occlusive purpose. I know forsythia aren't popular but they were here when we bought the house 20 yrs ago and I actually do like them...but admittedly - they are taking up valuable space.
So what do you think? Would really appreciate your help.
