We are in the process of planning the evergreen screen for the backyard of our home. Right now it is very open and very large. In the future we will put the deck and possibly the pool, but want to start the screen asap. Any recommendations on the selection of the plants and any other provisions to keep in mind would be appreciated. You can see on the photo that the messy neighbors and always hungry deers are both serious issues for us.
As can you see the plant its getting brown spots i look all ready for bugs or something in it, just seen little tiny flying bugs nothing more are those the ones causing the damage???

Could be rust or black spot. DON'T water from overhead & give each rose lots of CIRCULATION
, that is space between each one. Water when it's sunny so leaves will dry out. Remove all brown or yellow leaves...DO NOT leave them on the ground under the plant. Apply a thick mulch under plant to prevent spread of fungus. This is caused by a fungus which overwinters in rose canes & fallen rose leaves. Very difficult to control so try to buy resistant varieties. Good luck.
