Best Vines for Pergola
I'm new to plants. We have a pretty big deck that was in need of repair. In the process, we decided to add a pergola. We love it and hope it last for a few years while we save money for an addition and new deck. We have a small pergola next to the deck.. pics below. We love the vines growing on them. They are some sort of grape. However, the asian beetles love them too!! :(
On our new pergola, we would love to have it covered in vines. What is the best cover for this(we live in NE IL) and what would grow/cover the fastest? Someone said train the existing to go over to the deck? Not sure I like that.
The pergola is apx 14' from the ground. It's got a long way to go. I would rather not wait 4/5 years for full cover.
Any help and suggestion will be appreciated!!
