Softening of a close boarded fence.
Located in Cumbria and within 600m of the sea (Salt air & very windy), I am about to erect a close-boarded fence to enclose part of the property. The fence will run N-S so will have one West facing side and one East facing. The fence will be situated between two buildings and thus partially shaded for much of the day. Once erected, I wish to plant some shrubs and climbing plants on each side of the fence to soften its appearance. The fence will be erected in September and I would like to achieve this softening effect fairly quickly. Can you please advise on plants suitable for this project.
