Jon, not too hot on annuals but how about a couple of dahlias in there? 

And get some cosmos in there too.

wonderful crimson red leaves from mid summer to autumn. 

What is your weather like?

First day for 10 days or so without sun 

feels chilly

I "cover everything" except the stems.  Never lost a dahlia yet and grow them large even in comtainers.

but, yes, agree that there is no one "correct" way.

Hmmmm!  No feast for the eyes for at least 2 years and prob more   bugle naturally spreads fast rooting everywhere it touches.  Not grown it for several years now but still get small pieces persisting .   This is an example where a 3 litre pot can be purchased and divided into scores of plants ..........!!!

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

You need to consider you may have q problem there if you overplant with over vigorous trees.
