I did this and what I did was go to empty lots and find plants that had already proven they were tough by seeding themselves in empty lots and surviving without care. 

 

Sharpen your shovel, it makes a HUGE difference when digging up plants, cuts through roots cleanly.

 

Get a good metal file or much better an angle grinder , this tool and put an edge on that shovel. Works so much better.

I moved a wile ago but I just looked on Google Earth and my plant wall is still doing well.

You need arch support ! Why to make my arches weak so that way I really do ?

Will wearing a neck brace all day make my neck stronger too ?

If arch support is so good for my feet maybe I should use weight supports at the gym and  get the strongest muscles ever !

This is my backyard area. We had the established hedges, the tall ones that line up the grass area. No one sees in, no one sees out. Tall enough to block the views of neighboring windows etc. they're very vibrant and green in warm month and you just need to manicure them twice a year.

The other bottom photos are another bush of sorts that we have used to build a natural fence. We actually have the other side growing now just the bush is a bit small so that's why the temporary fences exist in the photos, just to keep the dog off the lawn and away from the rabbits. I think you can see Darkness saying hello in the top photo. :D

Red, white, black are our true colours
For these colours we will fight!
Red, white, black will crush the enemy
And will bring back what is right!

Do you want privacy or keeping riff-Raff out or keeping animals out?In an ideal world it would be nice not to have any fences but people are not virtuous enough.


Blowing out some one else's candle won't  make yours burn any brighter.

 

If you understand everything , you must be misinformed.

 

Reality is a moving target.

What grows well?
Do you want thorns?
What heights?
What's the function of the fence?

Will the fence cast shade on food garden plots?

if your going to have a garden, you need chicken wire. especially if you have chickens , as they will wreck the hell out of anything growing. rabbits groundhogs and armadillos also will destroy a good part of a garden. you can always put hedge next to the wire to cover it up, but the wire is a must.
