in McCrae, VIC Victoria
Nature of problem:
Hi 🙂 I am looking to plant along our fence line but don’t want anything too invasive. I do want to screen out some neighbours so a tree height of 8-12m would be preferred and evergreen. I do like the Ficus Hilli however I know they’re invasive. Anything similar. Or Olive trees? Any variety that has a better density?

You are best advised to walk around your block and look for screening plants that appeal to you. Pop in & ask what the plant is, or ask for a small piece to take to your local nursery for identification and advice on this plant’s suitability. What plants grow well in an area is dependent on local soils, microclimates, etc. Local knowledge is always best.
