This might be crazy, but widen the cement right there.

Waxleaf privets. Lots of types out there.

Almost zero maintenance other than a trim every now and then. Many shapes to choose from. Did you know a lot of those bushes shaped like animals are Waxleaf privets. It is what I have along the back wall of my yard. Easy to take care of and gives a nice even green when you look outside. About $30-40 for a 5 gallon plant. Maybe $70 for a 10-15 gallon.

Old picture. They're much bigger now.

Shut the **** up with the nitpicking

Let's see your yard

Thanks for the tip Shamoo. I'm looking for something to plant for a nice even line between the neighbors and us to give us some better privacy on one side.

GL sol, hope that all works out. House looks way nicer with the cleanup you did tbh.

Kinda like those privets. Can you top them, or do they kind of want to grow tall & skinny like that? I have a few places around my house that I want something similar that is maintenance free, but need them about half that height. Everyone’s boxwoods seem to be dying around here, including my parents. Nobody knows why.

Shamoo, those looks nice but how tall do they get?
I already have a very large holly tree on the far side that is about 15 fee high, I don't want anymore stuff blocking the house
