    I built the wall last year using next door`s broken slabs, but what to do with the ugly wall behind :scratch: The new pergola/archway is nice and sturdy - THIS one won`t fall over in the wind!

    SO...I painted, and planted. Now waiting for growth, and after last night`s rain, I reckon it all has a fighting chance :yawn:.....:snooze:

    ..(just adding, the 'before' picture didn`t materialise. Copy and paste didn`t work :sad: )

          Morning Mr Woo, I did consider a mural (or Muriel as Hilda Ogden would have said) but I think the parthenocissus will take over fairly well, and some of the other planting is quite tall. There is a Miscanthus zebrina there, and a very rampant rambling rose growing over the archway, as well as Lonicera halliana for scent, so I shall watch and wait this year. Thanks for the suggestions :smile:
