thanks for the suggestion. and yes, i hate the fence too. the intention definitely is to hide it and surround the garden with much more nice looking things. i am literally starting from scratch, and there are many areas of the garden to do so its where to start.
the border is already at the back, its gravel (the same one that goes up the sides in the picture.
what plants would you suggest? the soil is very acidic, heavy clay. i quite like cupressus/goldcrest, something like this: http://www.nemesia.co.uk/cupressus-macrocarpa-goldcrest---golden-cypress-2751-p.asp. theres no danger on height particularly, as there is a house behind that back fence anyway.
