Two tier border with railway sleepers to cover ugly back wall and fence
Hi, I am looking at improving the view by covering the ugly wall and fences at the back of the garden (see attached pics). Thinking of something two tier railway sleepers in the below link and running this all the way along the back wall (up to where the trampoline is). The top level I am thinking of bamboo (non invasive species) to grow up and cover the neighbours mixed array of fence panels. Then the bottom level could be a manageable selection of small shrubs and flowers/plants.
What are your thoughts? Would it look good or not? The neighbours (to left side in the pic) have a rockery going up which performs a similar function. Guess that would be a cheaper option.
Would this be doable for a bit of a DIY/gardening novice or would it need a professional and if so how much do you think it would cost?
Any alternative ideas most welcome.
