whats the best way to separate an open plan garden (a path divides us and next door). The path (approx 15-20ft) is slightly curved and a fence or anything obtrusive isn't really an option. Our side is also patio. we get on well with our neighbours, its not a case of privacy, just to make it more our own! Any ideas?



A framework of some kind is required - perhaps just free standing shrubs, in a row or a curve, or a hedge, but nothing that gets too wide, so perhaps columnar shaped things would be best. Otherwise how about rigid trellis fencing panels, 6 x 6 feet - these are pretty open and you could grow climbers up them. Be easier if you had a photograph you could post...

you could even put some nice arches within the trellis idea of can grow living arches like climbing roses or if far enough away from houses willow arch.a big mirror in one or to would look realy nice to i think.stagger a few small trees either side of the path to keep that informal could tuck a nice double seat between to nice shrubs further up the end.maybe a couple of pagodas going across the path with climbers in a couple of mite even be nice to divide subtly your own garden lenght wise at the same time like across you dont realy know how many smaller gardens there are.give it the idea of being lots of little themed gardens.anyway theres a few ideas take care bye for now .
