The chicken wire would be enough to support a climber or two, and shrubs would support them too as they grow.

What kind of conifers do you have now, and how big are they?

Righto...First of all you need to keep your dog secure, so make a temporary fence up with stakes and chicken wire - wont cost a fortune, and will keep fido in.

If you have rhododendrons that means you have acid soil, so if you have a search of plants that like your kind of soil, you could have a chat with your neighbour over a coffee.....or a beer and decide what would look nice.

If you grow a good selection of shrubs with - maybe a climber or two mixed in you could make your hedge interesting - and the new plants will grow and cover up the chicken wire.

You are wise to keep it friendly with your neighbours, and I hope it all works out for you.   

? what please

I would get on to "freecycle"  there`s always someone only too pleased to get rid of soil - and it doesn`t have to be posh soil just to grow grass

Talkback: Plants for dry shade

Sorry to disagree, but I`ve never yet found a hydrangea that will tolerate a dry situation - they all need lots of water.
