I have my two daughters bedrooms on the east side of the house, where it gets morning sun but not a lot more than that. The problem is that it is basically a strip of concrete down along the house with a meter wide 'garden bed' then the neighbours fence. My neighbours have the back side of their house, caravan and shed all on that side (all the yucky stuff no one wants to see) and my girls bedroom windows look straight out onto it.
Id like to plant something very low maintenance, about 2m tall (to block out some of the view) but something that wont be an issue with drainage pipes (we are currently cutting down the lilly pillies that are there (very sad and sorry looking) - its also where all our plumbing is!
I would think that bamboo would be an easy option, however worry about it spilling out into the neighbours yard being so close (even clumping varieties) so dont want to do that - other suggestions welcome - even tall grasses??
Let me know your thoughts! Thanks muchly!
