Q.Appropriate Hedge Planting For Our Location
Need your recommendation for a planting that will grow tall (even 8-10 feet would be ideal) near the periphery of our property line and provide privacy and a sound barrier from nearby street noise. The planting location is the issue for finding a planting that will thrive there. It is in full shade under the canopy of two large pine trees (so the soil is acidic). We are in Zone 5 in Colorado. We have considered the common laurel, but we are not sure if it is appropriate for Zone 5.
