Sorry if I'm in the wrong forum... new user.
I'm in zone 6a. I have gigantic mith...grass (don't remember the full name) growing near my neighbors fence line to help screen his yard. The grass is about 20' down his fence line.... I have another 60' to go. I don't want the same texture down the entire line but do want height... approx. 10-12' would be perfect. I'm looking at adding a section of Arrowwood Viburnum or maybe redtwigged dogwood. Truth is, I'm not totally sure which is best. I only know of these two after looking around town to see what other people have used and found that I like what I'm seeing out of these.
I'd like to keep the "width" of the hedge to around 5-6 feet. I will prune yearly. I want height. This area will get late morning through mid-afternoon sun. There is good drainage in this area.
What is best? I don't want something to grow to 25'. I'd like a fast grower if possible. Color would be nice but not a requirement. As dense as possible would be great just to prevent prying eyes (dogs) from peaking through and barking at us all the time.
Thanks for recommendations!! Very much appreciate it!
