Hi Gerry, We are applying for planning for a house and need to decide on what kind of bush to use, to shield our house from our neighbours. We are looking for a fast growing, non shedding bush. Preferable “bushy” enough so we can’t see our future neighbours at all. As none of us have green fingers we would love it if you could give us advice on which type of bush to go for. A reply is much appreciated. Kind regards, Annie

 There are a number of possibilities … you need to use a broad-leaved evergreen, not a conifer.

Examples include laurel, holly, pittosporum, olearia and griselinia.
