Which plants over drains

Hi All,

Just wondering if you could come up with some plants or shrubs that I can create a hedge or screen. Problem is the area where I want to plant it is directly above my drains which are about 3ft down. I don't want to plant anything that might go hunting for the drains. 

Many thanks

    You needs shrubs with shallow, fibrous roots, like Hydrangeas, Berbéris, Viburnums, Lilac. If you have acid soil then azaleas and camellias could be OK, but azaleas like some shade.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
