There are two things that I am fond of, Greenery and Natural Privacy.
I always wanted some privacy around the perimiter of my house.
Why not get them both at once?
So there goes my MR.BRAIN for some hunt.
And I have an Idea......
(EDIT- 18 Month update is posted in last step)
Step 1: Talent hunt
One main problem that I identified was lack of space.
I did not want any plants on my ground. The garden was lush and it was not feasible to dedicate any real-estate for the hedge.
Yes it was possible!
I had a thick wall for the perimeter itself, giving me a platform 12 inches wide exactly where i needed (the compound itself) and it ran all around my house.
Next Issue was choosing the plant that will do fine with just 9 to 12 inches of space and still grow tall and lush.
Fortunately, God has given us so many handsome choices, and I did not need time to Select one.
I went for what is called as "Bambusa Tulda" the native Indian bamboo.
This is a well behaved and evergreen Bamboo and most suitable for my use
Did you know that, It was actually the first plant to re-green after the atomic blast in Hiroshima in 1945?
