Planting ideas around compost area

I’m creating a new compost area at the back of my garden. It will be tucked away in one of the corners but a reasonable size (maybe 20ft by 20ft). I’m going to put some compost bins in the very back corner of the area against a wooden fence, but would like some ideas on what I could plant as a screen (I’ll also have some stepping stones to get from the lawn area of the garden to the compost area). The area is south facing but quite heavily shaded by trees belonging to my neighbour. And from the house (and most of the garden) the compost area won’t be visible. Partly because it’s tucked away in the corner but also because a large shed will hide it. I was thinking bamboo as something that will be shade-tolerant and grow easily and not need too much tending. But any other thoughts? Perhaps there’s room for a couple of small trees - but what species to go for?
