The Q&A Archives: Screening Vine

Question: I have a block wall that separates my backyard from my neighbors. I would like something that will hide the wall and maybe give a little more privacy since the wall is only six feet high. I though of some type of vine but I don't want anything that would be harful to dogs or kids. Any suggestions?

Answer: In your mild climate many vines will grow year around, which will help you cover your wall in a hurry. Fast growing vines for your gardening region include Bougainvillea (most have thorns), Distictis, Muehienbeckia (Mattress Vine), Petrea (Queen's Wreath), Tecoma (Cape Honeysuckle) and Rhoicissus (evergreen grape). Hope you find just the right plant for your wall!
