You could erect 2 or 3 metre high posts at 2 or 3 metre intervals and in concrete for stability then string tensioned wires between them then train a climber over them. A strong rambling rose such as Kiftsgate which will get to 10 metres so can be trained along the wires. It will give masses of frothy, white scented blooms in June and then produce hips in autumn. You could extend the season of interest by growing a summer flowering clematis from the viticella group or maybe a honeysuckle for more scent. Paul's Himalayan Musk is another rambler to consider as it will grow to about 9 metres.
Such a project would shield the view from your patio doors without cutting all the light and would need little maintenance except for regular tying in of stems and pruuning of dead wood in spring.
