    I got a call to come and look at a yard on Tuesday. One of the things that they want done is bushes/trees in the back to keep the sun out of their windows. I have not seen the job so I don't know for sure what they want, I am just going off of what she has told me. I live in South Carolina and I am wanting to know what I could suggest to her? Any input would be very helpful.

    Questions are, how fast does it need to grow, how big the tree is when planted, is the homeowner going to have the patience to wait 10- 40 years for a tree to mature, ect.

    Also, what kind of trees are native to your area.

    Find out more info. Might be some good questions to ask.
