Privacy Screens

Climbing plants are great for providing privacy, acting as a privacy screen when set somewhat apart from the house. This applies to terrace partitions, balcony railings, large climbing plant walls, pergolas, carportsenclosures for rubbish containers, and garden fences. Often no additional climbing support is necessary. You can delve into the respective themes offered in the links, and also find your way to our climbing plants and trellis materials.

Suitable Climbing Plants

Annual climbing plantssewn closely enough or planted incontainers, provide a surprisingly effective protection from unwanted eyes, also bringing charm with their brightly-coloured flowers. Hopscan provide considerable privacy, as early as mid-May. For particularly lush foliage and for quick greening, we recommend silver lace vine, though the maintenance (pruning) is considerably more. This also applies to wisteria, though it grows more slowly at the beginning. Dutchman's pipe creates especially dense greenery; grapevine and fruitless wild grapevine add a certain aesthetic,  providing lush foliage, however, earliest in late spring. For opaque surfaces all year round, ivy is the best choice, but other evergreen plants are also possible. The autumn foliage of many climbing plants is quite beautiful.
