Use them to soften a bare wall or cover a plain fence, creating a view where none exists such as in a courtyard or at the side of a house.
Let a grapevine scramble over your pergola for summer shade or use a shade-loving variety to green up the darkest corner of the yard.

Turn a bare spot into a garden feature by training a flowering climber over a trellis to screen the wheelie bins or hide the compost heap.

TIP On a deck, position evergreen scented climbers like jasmine to bring fragrance into the house.

Green the scene
