My rear garden is in two sections one long (19 yds) narrow section which leads to a patio which then leads to another section that is about 10 yds in lenght and deep as it stretches down the side of the house (we use this as a kids play area). The first section at the back of the house we want to do something to.... I am looking for ideas to plant a long border. I want depth and some height to it (we are overlooked). I feel I need to get the back layer in so it can start growing (the trees and shrubs) and then I can add to it as I go along. Does anyone know of any good planting schemes or can suggest good shrubs/trees to cover this kind of range... I dont want any trees that will be higher than 20 ft eventually.
I have added a few photos to show the section in question
