Hello! I love the secret garden look, but I only have the outer edges of my yard to work with (the lawn must remain, unfortunately). So I want to make the best of it by creating layers of greenery along the fence. The side that I'm working with has a chain link fence facing south. It gets full sun.

Any suggestions for how to do this? I started some virginia creeper along the fence last fall, but it won't give me the height I want. maybe I can start a tall, thin hedge along the fence, and then plant other things in front of it? Or maybe there's a way to intersperse the creeper wall with an uneven line of cedars or other evergreen to create depth (and hopefully the feeling of endless forest?!), and scatter wildflowers, river rocks and smaller bushes at the base? I am in zone 5b (southern Ontario) and am not the most experienced gardener, although my husband is, and he will be doing the actual planting. I am very motivated to mulch, weed and water, and I put down really good soil last fall that's full of worm casings. Thank you for any suggestions!

Hi and welcome.
Hedges spread outwards. They are also slow growing.

Here in the UK we have smaller gardens, most have six ft fences separating them from next door's.

An ideal plant is a wisteria.

Blooms in the spring.

"Fence covering foliage" in the summer and autumn.
