    Greetings to all,
    My name is Sandy, and I am new to the forum.
    I am looking for suggestions as to what would be the most appropriate hedge plant for Southern California.
    Let me start at the beginning...
    A few years back, I got ding-d by my insurance company for a line of 14 fully mature Italian Cypress trees that were just a little bit to close to the side of my home. They had to go. Which left full exposure to a busy street and noise.
    The tree trimmer suggested we replant with 21 Eugenia’s ( which I did ) and they have thrived, but have not filled in as well as I wanted.
    I now have another area that I want to plant, with about 6 “hedge plants” tighter, fuller, and quicker growing.
    I fully intend on uploading a picture or two, of a hedge I recently saw that would fill the bill perfectly, ( hopefully one of you fine people will be able to identify )
    If not, I am open to any and all suggestions.
    Thanks in advance...
    Sandy

    Saw one in the garden design programme yesterday and I realy want to have one!

    Fast growing and cheap. Stick the cuttings in the soil and everything will grow, including other cuttings ..

    Privet can fit the bil, also Abelia with flowers as added interest. Or Red Robin.
