Garden Help: I need to find some screening for my backyard
I have a HUGE backyard. Really the backyard is bigger than my house. Anyway I have one corner where I need to plant some kind of screening plant
that is inexpensive
doesn't require much care from me - partly because I haven't bought enough hose to go that far
is rather attractive
Other requirements are that it should be able to tolerate a lot of sun as the section of the yard is not shaded - hence the reason I neede some screening back there -
and a benefit would be that it would irritate my neighbors so that they might move their child's swingset which is right behind the 3' chainlink fence. The child keeps throwing things over it. I was giving them back but last summer I stopped doing that because the items were landing further into my backyard.
I live in zone 7
I want something bushy
The soil is Claylike and kind of hilly, I really don't want to work with it much. I think there was a blackberry shrub there before I bought the house.
