Post #16609

I am thinking of planting a line of shurbs or a hedge to create a barrier between our house and the busy state route on which our home is located. I have a young daughter in whom I have instilled the fear of the road and who doesn't play outside by herself, but this would be an added assurance. The strip is 30' in length, give or take.

I am looking for something that I can easily keep trimmed to a height of three feet or less. Does anyone have any experience with this type of endeavor that they would be willing to share? Is there anything beyond the traditionaly hedges that you often see in city lots, maybe something flowering? I'm open to any ideas.
