    Dry stone wall.  That screening will go tatty very quickly in winter weather and look dreadful whereas the stone looks good whatever the weather and will also provide homes for insect who like crevices.

    Wall. You can stick trailing plants in it. The bamboo won't last long anyway.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Wall - no contest.  :)
    That bamboo stuff just breaks down - very quickly in wet conditions.
    The wooden edging will be the same I'm afraid.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Another vote for wall. Real beats artificial 9 times out of 10 :)

    The wall, the wall, the wall, the wall, …

    That timber edging on a roll has a fairly short shelf life as well.

    Bamboo screening ....

    ... only kidding - stone wall with plants in the crevices every time. I have serious wall envy.
