Screening tree

AmandaGAmandaG Posts: 3

I want a focal point screening tree at the back of my garden. I live on a kind of estate so there is a house just behind mine. Almost 4 years ago, when we moved in I planted an Amelanchier Ballerina (I had researched Amelanchier Canadensis but purchased the wrong one). It is a very beautiful tree but does not screen very well, the height covers the windows opposite but it is very thin. Have I made a mistake and would another tree be better? Next to it I have a red robin shrub and bamboo fargasia which I planted last year and are quickly catching up. I am wondering if the tree will 'fill out' over the years or I have just bought a very small tree? Thanks for reading, I have already got brilliant advice from this forum and really appreciate it.
