I am new to this NG. I have a 5 Ft high page wire fence that runs for
aproximately 175 feet. I want to put in a "hardy" leafy perenial vine that
will offer some sort of privacy. What would you use and how far would you
plant them apart for maximum privacy? I live in Regina, Saskatchewan,
Canada. Thanks for any replies.....Jim
That's a fairly long stretch of fence. Do you get much sun? My first
thought is English Ivy but I would need more particulars. I've got a very
slow going vine called 5 Leaf Akeebia. It is really sturdy but a very slow
grower. If you get a bit of sun, even dappled shade I would maybe go for
the Virginia Creeper. They are very hardy here in St. Louis and the fall
foilage is very attractive.
This is how it works in my house. Click the pic to enlarge it:
Hi, Hmm, yes it will work. But keep them trimmed once they cover the
fence. I moved into a house where someone took that advice about 30
years ago - we have ivy with stems 3 in. across!! Taming it has been a
huge issue! It DOES make the yard more private though, so this advice
