I need some help choosing the right trees for our garden. Last year we were planning to extend our back deck and removed a row of wattles that lined both our fence and deck. Plans have changed and we are now looking to reinstate these and plant some fast growing yet still good looking trees or shrubs. Our garden consists of mainly wattles and gum trees so we are wanting to work with these. Any suggestions?
Where are you based @Gwandalan_Tales? And what type of soil do you have?
We recently put some crabapple trees in along a fenceline which look great when they are more mature.
Most common recommendation that you will hear is pittosporum as they are so fast growing: up to a metre a year. But not to everyone's taste. Did you want something that you can hedge? Do you need privacy? Need to cover/hide anything?
Thanks for joining in the discussion.
You might like to post a photo of the area that you are working with and share details of your soil - it might assist members in providing more specific advice.
I hope you can also get some inspiration from these previous discussions on Workshop:
