Q. Fast-Growing Screen Plants/Shrubs

I live in Rockland County, New York just 40 minutes north of New York City. I need a fast-growing shrub to use as a screen. I was thinking bamboo, but I’m afraid of it being too agressive. The area to plant is in a southern exposure but is also exposed to northern winds.

Try either Kentucky Bluegrass or Perennial Ryegrass in the front. You can also use them in the back but mix in some Fine Fescue to help balance out for the shade.
