Sorry Steve there is no quick fix, if I've guessed your situation right. The only answer as, several people have said,is plant trees yourself, but your garden may not be big enough and trees grow slowly. Please don't plant conifers. Yes they are faster growing mostly, but many are hideously ugly. Here's a left field suggestion. Smack in tall wooden poles without the side branch stumps cut off. Yes I know this is a challenge to find, but a good timber merchant will help. Plant some clematis montana, any variety will do, as will the late flowering, most vigorous kinds. Don't get the pretty but little ones. They will ramp up the posts quickly (well within 2 years), obscuring the view and giving you sensational flowers throughout the from Spring through Autumn. Do you see now now why you can't use telephone posts? You may well have to do some tying in in the early stages and probably some engineering help with the posts, but trust me. Good luck. Ian.
Don't listen to me I'm a raving lunatic. Read the next post.
