Love to hear your ideas for privacy. The house is close to the road and the sidewalk ends in front of the house. This is a small square yard which has a snowball bush and another large flowering bush. Also has 6 very large old peony plants. We planted a cherry tree and for some reason I put in three slow growing pines? along one fence. There is a mostly dying rose bush at the right of the house and I planted flowers underneath the front windows.
