What is the best way to hide/cover an ugly looking fence that cannot be replaced due to a neighbours overlapping trees



I would put some bamboo canes in front of the fence and grow runner beans up it. You will get lovely green foliage and red or white flowers depending on the type of bean. Then you can have lovely meals of freshly picked runner beans. This is what I do every year to hide our neighbours cemented garage which forms the one side of our garden. If you haven't got soil there to plant them in you can grow the beans in buckets, troughs or anything handy :-)

A variety of clematis which is bright red and late flowering is Duchess of Albany. This will cover the fence. If you wish you could also plant another earlier flowering one as well.
