giant pampas grass
I want to grow these grasses to block out the house that is next to my home at the bottom of my garden, I dont want to upset my neighbours so will talk to them before planting. I want to know what size they will be when delivered and fast do they grow. We did have laylandi trees there before which provided us with a lot of privacy but the neighbour said by law that they could only be 2 meters. In hines sight we wish we had just maintained them at 2 meters. Advice needed please Jean Pearson

There are many cultivars that will remain shorter, but most can get a little over 2 meters tall. They can grow relatively fast, but they won't fill out for two or three years. Eventually it will spread to fill out the area completely. I would suggest visiting a local nursery to see their varieties, or look online making sure to pay attention to the mature height. You can get just about any size container of this grass, but the bigger and more established it is, the more expensive it will be.
