We have a privacy issue following our neighbours removing a row of conifers. We have done something similar to Lavender Lady with a mixture of shrubs, small trees and climbers (pyracantha, photinia, laurels, honeysuckle, clematis) which are in a border next to a 6 ft fence with an extra foot of trellis on top. I like this effect as is a bit more interesting than a hedge and you should have a good screen eventually! We have also created a trellis screen around the patio which works well because unfortunately we have first floor windows looking down at us so we had no privacy at all in our garden.
