I have a green plastic criss-cross council fence. I want to grow many climbers. Would like to extend the height. Help with ideas please...the fence is at the back of raised beds made from decking.



Hi there.

Wherabouts is the fence? I ask, as front garden fences can't be any higher than 4 feet, and back garden fences can be no higher than 6 feet 6 inches.

I wouldn't try to grow anything substantial on a plastic fence, anyway. Better a strategically placed tall shrub or two, or a strong trellis in the same spot, if you need to save more space. Double check the council rules on that, though.

How do I say thanks?
