That's a slightly different situation then Redwing
If you need something to clothe a large area, and don't have ground to plant into, I'd suggest making a raised bed of a decent size to give your chosen climber a chance. Simply trying to contain a vigorous grower rarely works as the plant can't get roots out as well as down. Constricting roots usually constricts the top growth as well.
Bear in mind that your own conditions will have an effect on the amount of growth too. Like any plant, what grows well in a southern, warm sheltered position, won't grow the same in a more exposed, colder one.
