I have a home on 2.3 acres and the previous owner planted some hedges along the sides for privacy along much of the lot, but there is still about 100' down each side along a wood n wire fence that needs something there to shield off noise and the neighbors. I am not sure how long I'll live here so I'm willing to spend more if that gives me privacy now vs. waiting for small plants to grow into something. So, is there an affordable way to landscape for privacy? Maybe a layered effect, with trees that cover the high area behind lower growing plantings to cover the area up to where their foliage starts. Any ideas on what to look for and what kind of cost I'm looking at? The budget is flexible, but if I spend a lot I have higher expectations that if it's just popping cheap ficus plants in the ground in a hedge.
