I have an inground pool and am looking for something to plant along fence line for privacy screen> I have considered ornamental grass, or arborvitae. I would like it fact growing up to 7feet, and don’t want to spend a fortune… Right now it can be temporary and I will replant to side fence lines as I can afford other options.thoughts? recommendations?I am in Zone 5 (Waterford NY), the area is full sun

It depends on the sunlight the area gets.  If the area gets 7+ housr of sun per day in midsummer that an economical choice would be forsythia.  it will flower well before the pool is open so won’t be messy.  For a shady area, Clethra would be a good choice.  HERE’S more on Clethra and HERE’s more on Forsythia.
