Cordoned fruit trees for privacy
My garden is small so I have some fruit growing amongst ornamental plants and am keen to increase. The fence on one side is quite low, so I had considered espaliered fruit trees. I'm now wondering whether cordoned trees would be better as they can be planted quite close together. I know there would still be gaps in winter, but neighbours don't really use their garden so I don't need full screening. I would just like to feel less exposed. Their garden is bare so I can see right across the the garden the other side of theirs, too. They wouldn't like anything to hang over the fence and would probably cut it off, so I thought cordoned trees might be ideal.
Does anybody think this will work? Or will they not provide a feeling of privacy?
