Some bamboo are very invasive and can get to amazing heights. Have you thought of bamboo hedging you'll buy a roll of this from the local diy store or garden centre and then its instant privacy and alot cheaper!

clematis alpina goes mad with me Ive got it growing over my oil tank its gong mad. My wee terrier has damaged it so many times trying to catch birds (thankfully unsuccessfully) and it grows from the bottom again. Its in full sun on the oil tank but equally happy growing up an archway in shade

Suggestions for a bit of privacy...

 What I would do is three obelisks(is that how you spell the word) and space them almost in a triangle to one corner and possibly one to the opposite corner what ive done is grow honeysuckle up them which is evergreen. You could always get different heights and make a feature of this.This would give anyone passing something to look at and you a bit of privacy. You could even make the obelisks yourself with a visit to the local wood and a ball of string.   Just another idea      Jenny

Hi Annie,

Could you lift random slabs and fill with plants have different sized pots,old tin bath,whisky barrels etc giving all different heights and a seating area. Just think no grass to cut. You could soften round the pots with random stones of all sizes and soften with gravel edges. I agree with the "skiddiness" of the gravel as a path.
