I think 2 meters is the maximum a fence can be.

Can you put wires on it or even better, a trellis? Then you could grow all sorts of climbers to beautify the drab fence!

I agree with Spritz. Theres such a choice of plants that can grow up against a fence, you just need to suupport them a bit. Clematis is a great favourite, then theres variagated ivy, and winter jasmine for winter colour. In the summer you can add annuals like morning glory. The list could go on. Obviously you need to avoid something very big and vigorous that might pull the fence down.

Euonymus fortunei has some varieties that are self-clinging too - 'Silver Queen' and 'Emerald Gaiety' spring to mind

Cotoneaster horizontalis will grow up against the fence without any wires. We have it growing up the side of a building and its lovely.
