I am looking for suggestions for a tree/shrub to plant as protection for other plants. the area concerned is at the side of the house between the house wall and a six feet high fence. The wind whistles along this and I want to protect the plants already there. The passage is just under six feet wide and is half path half border so whatever is planted needs to be narrow or able to be cut back when necessary, and thorn free. I dont mind tree, shrub or climber as long as it is wind-proof. All help appreciated.
