I live in a first floor purpose built maisonette of a block of four i.e. there are two ground floor maisonettes and two on the first floor in the block. My garden is at the front of the building and is the width of half of the block to coincide with the width of the maisonette. (The rear garden belongs to the neighbour below me).
My garden is lawned and open plan, it extends from the building to the street only separated by the pathway which runs a long side the road. There are no fences or borders separating it from the pathway or the neighbours adjacent gardens.
The garden has always just been a lawn and has never been used for anything because of the lack of privacy. I would like to change this by creating a natural screen/border so we can make use of it for recreational purposes. It would have to be about 2 metres in height.
My question is what would be best to plant or preferably buy fully grown to create a low maintenance, low cost and pleasing to the eye screen/border?
