Interesting privacy shrubs for zone 6
I just moved into a house in the country. There is nothing around except for another house on a lot right next to ours. Love our neighbor, but we'd like to put up shrubs that would block his house from our view. Preferably at least six feet high. As of right now, you can see into the windows from his yard.
I'd prefer something fast growing, but I also would like a shrub that is a bit more interesting than the norm. I like the shape of forsythia, but I'd prefer something evergreen. I've considered smoke bush, but it has the same problem. Do you have any suggestions? I'd love something that did not require a ton of pruning.
