We have a 1m strip along the back of our pool that will need plants... behind that is a colourbond fence. It pretty much gets full sun after about 9am until about 2pm.
Any suggestions, I dont like the look of the fence so I would like plants that will be different heights, obviously plants that drop little leaf would be good too.
Thinking some Yuccas, yet they have such spikey ends.
Do you think some palms? Bamboo drops leaves so that it out of the question too.
The rest of our garden has a mixture of bromelaids, birds nest ferns, assorted grassy things plus some bamboo.

I like palms for this type of thing - or small succulents that love heat.
But - if its a narrow long bit - fake grass is what I'm considering. Once done - no work
You could still have the succulents.
