We have a trellis between us and next door, it sits over a gap in the slabs which currently has weed control and gravel in it. The trellis is approx 5ft tall. When we first moved in 4 years ago it was covered with an old clematis which had seen better days and something with berries on it.
As we have 2 small children we decided that the berries were too tempting and cut it all back. The problem is now we are left with bare trellis and a great view of the neighbours back door!
It hasnt been a problem until now, but hte current neighnbours are moving and I would prefer a bit more privacy as they are renting the house out.
Ideally I would like something evergreen and fairly low maintenance as the property next door will be rented and I don't want to cause problems with the neighbours by planting something which needs regular maintenance.
Thought about Ivy but was unsure of the variety.
Prefer something not too costly and it must be child friendly so no poisonous plants/berries/pods.
