Default Recommend a screening shrub/low tree?

"Mr Sandman" wrote in message
I need to screen a garden from a road, but not with a hedge, i was thinking
a large quick growing evergreen bush that will remain clothed down to the
ground and grow to a height of about 3m?

Any suggestions?



You would be better off using shrubs that are used for hedging because what
ever you plant you will at some point wish to cut it back as nothing comes
with an "Off switch" Eleagnus x ebingii has some nice coloured leaved forms
as do the non prickly hollies,
