Hi Gina,


Thank you so much! I'm afraid this is unlikely to help you as this is not actually a wall. It's a mature leylandii hedge within which we have built a scaffold frame to support the picture frames. If you want some solid cover that will grow fast. you could try an ivy species. This would need to be kept under control however and the suckers from the stems do work their way into the brickwork so maybe not if it is a wall you share with a neighbour. A less aggressive evergreen climber would be Trachelospernum jasminoides. This would need supporting on the wall so would be safe in terms of the brickwork but would be a slower grower and you'd need to keep it clipped in order to ensure dense coverage. Another solution would of course be to put a hedge in front of the wall. you could then use the wall to support picture frames/lights etc. If this was your solution though, I would not recommend leylandii since it does not grow back when it dies back and so putting objects in front (such as picture frames!) causes bare patches (we have to rotate the ones in the picture to ensure adequate light reaches the hedge behind!). I would instead suggest a Yew or maybe Privet. Hope that answers your question and gives you a bit of direction!

Марина Островская Так всё зависит от целей. Многие не хотят жить в "городе", но и жить на "даче" не хотят и таких людей много, например я) В идеале на мой взгляд, сад должен быть продолжением дома, а если жители дома любят такие блага как , посудомойка, робот-пылесос, автоклимат итд. , то естественно и сад будет таким же, с подсветкой, подогревом дорожек , автополивом и прочими благами цивилизации.

Каждый создает себе удобное пространство для жизни. А понятие удобно, отдых и природа для каждого своё.

марина островская, ну если вам не нравятся современные примочки для сада это еще не значит, что это не правильно. Почему тогда не живете в пещере отказавшись от всех благ цивилизации? У вас есть свет на участке? Вам же никто не навязывает освещение и прочее!

Kugeldisteln und etliche andere Vertreter dieser Familie neigen dazu sehr früh im unteren Stengelbereich braune, trockene Blätter zu bilden. Deswegen setze ich immer Stauden davor, die dies im Sommer verdecken können.

Genau. Oder auch Gräser. Man kann sie auch hervorragend in Töpfe pflanzen, falls einmal "nur" ein Balkon vorhanden ist. Es ist immer wieder erstaunlich, dass die Insekten dies Nahrungsquellen finden. Ute Geyer / Neue GartenPerspektiven / www.neue-gartenperspektiven.de
