        I'd like to collect some ideas for a fast growing,evergreen shrub
or tree, thats not going to grow into a monster. maybe to 4-5 metres.

        Any ideas appreciated.


Good Heavens, John, they must be a rotten bunch...only 4-5*meters* you say?

Privet and Cedar are standards for your purpose here; down there why don't
you try thorny mimosa?  prickly pear?  quince? pyracantha?
