Hi Everyone


Soon, the decking in the attached picture will be removed and the screening against fence will be taken down

The fence pannels are 5ft, and we would like a 6ft cover.  Cant realy afford to get whole new set of fence pannels as will also need new posts etc.

What I am thinking is getting trellis pannel and attaching it to the fence pannels, but higher by say 6inches.

What would be best to plant to grow up and over the trellis (hopfully add few more inches in height)?

Idealy would be evergreen and if possible all year round attraction. Be that flowers or berries.
