Which garden screening ?

We want to put up some screening to cover an old fence which is in a shaded part of our garden

There appears to be a lot of choice, such as bamboo, willow, hazel etc etc ...

Which screening on a role is likely to last the longest ?

We appreciate which ever one we choose will not last for too many years but would like to know which is likely to last longest before rotting & needing replacing

Many Thanks



You might try bamboo but they all deteriorate very quickly. No matter what you use it will have to be replaced every one or two years.

I have had Bamboo screening for 5 years. It looks dirty but has not rotted. It was on a roll. Just needs wiring onto the other fence with short lengths of cheap plastic covered wire. Strong winds tend to blow it down, if not secure.
