Rose/Clematis Privacy Screen
Inspite of the dismal 3 day holiday drizzle, we were able to just about complete our latest birthday project for our niece. Her and her husband's birthdays are a day apart and ever since they bought their first house, we've been doing projects for their birthdays (we have no children so none are being neglected in the process :-) Most of the new construction nowadays gives you lots of house and little yard and precious little privacy. The first year we built a long arbor for wisteria and the like to block 5 of their neighbor's windows. After building a new deck last year that elevated their recreating area and decreased their privacy by a couple of feet, we decided to build a privacy screen/trellis that wrapped around the corner. At the end of last year, we set the posts, did the rough framing and planted a couple of climbers. This w/e, short of a little staining, we finished them off. Here's a few shots from various angles...............
