Hi Louise, we have planted some clematis at the back, and last year we dug up about 10 similar trees (Snake bark maple) from random areas of the garden (self-seeded) and created a back drop behind for a bit of a windbreak. Problem is the trees might grow up instead of out as they weren't coppiced early enough... We wait and see : p

PS That whole shaped section behind is the Wild Flower garden (cant see it very clearly) need to cut the grass, and then beyond in the top corner is the Dell. Thinking Honeysuckle as well: )
