I divide my garden using a couple of espalier apple trees tied to wire and posts at a slight diagonal bout 1.3 metres high. Right from the first blossom to leaf-fall they make a very effective screen, so you don't see the whole garden at once, but are easily reached to prune when the time comes. This year I have also used a bean wigwam to block out the view of the house from a bench overlooking a pond. The bench catches the early evening sun so it's great to sit there without being able to see buildings and watch the bees on the bean flowers and dragonflies catching their supper over the pond.
