Recommendations for narrow, 18 inch privacy hedge

Stephen Gao

We are constructing a wrought iron fence along the front yard. It will be 18 inches set back from the sidewalk. We want to plant a privacy hedge in the 18 inches between the fence and the sidewalk. Many fences that have this amount of space for hedges seem to use ficus plants, but I've read not to use ficuses because of their invasive roots. Google searches for "narrow hedges" return results for things like privet needing 3-4 feet of width.

What would be a good plant to use for a hedge that only has 18 inches of depth?
