How to hide fenced

We just removed a large area of bramble, bush, hedging and regained a 3rd of the garden and installed new fencing. We don't want to encroach on the gained land, well as little as possible but want to build up with the odd small tree, good size shrubs and climbers to defuse the brand new side/fencing. Some shade through the day but we need to add height at the end of the garden which is in sun all day. We are real garden novice's so any advice welcome.

My wife is Oz and would also love a type of Eucalyptus but one that's not going to grow to 20/30mtrs. Not sure if this exists. Thanks already 


  • Wayne,

    This is one of those times of year to spy on other people's gardens and see what looks good. You'll also have to do the same in spring and summer. Plant what you like the look of, but do the research to see if there are any downsides (such as it spreads like wildfire or grows too tall or wide).

    you could always plant eucalyptus and coppice or pollard it regularly, some take coppicing/pollarding better than others

    have a look at the below site, it should give you some ideas
