Cover the fences and walls with climbing plants.Many climbers are so robust that they can cover the wall or fence in a single growing season. They may also grow through tress and shrubs that are already grown, or even cover an arbor. Some types of climbers support themselves naturally through twining stems or tendrils, while other varieties need to be held up by tying them in place. Some climbers that have proven to be reliable are honeysuckle, jasmine, jasmine, clematis, and climbing roses.

Replant your cuttings immediately for the cuttings.

Choose one plant to use for a focal point. The focal points are those plants that really stand out from those that are adjacent.
