Other Comments:
I am looking for evergreen tree/hedging that can plant in the raised planter to hide the boundary wall. We will get sunlight in that areas 5-6 hours in the summer and no sunlight in the winter. Could you please suggest some trees or hedging for this areas. Also, I need to be mightful of the root system that doesn’t want to damage the neighbour’s wall.

Sorry Aravind, but there is nowhere near enough information there for me to be able to help you. I strongly suggest that you get local advice including a site visit from a landscaper or horticulturist to assess what can be done. Don
