i am thinking about planting some hedges/evergreens that will afford me
a bit of privacy.can anyone suggest a fast growing evergreen that i can
plant closely together and that can be trimmed for neatness? not sure of
my growing zone but i live in s.e. michigan. the area i want to plant in
is more shady than not.
I agree that Laurel can be a _maintenance_ nightmare, but the OP
specifically asked for "fast growing" plants. I have a rental property
with a Laurel hedge in front. The tenants trim it a couple of times
per year. Every several years I take it down to the ground with a
chainsaw. It's well established and always grows back, but I'm almost
to the point of replacing it with some slower growing variety of
Cypress or Yew, or perhaps Boxwood which grows much slower.
