Bare expanses of brick work, like tall panel fences, present a challenge to the garden designer. Outbuildings such as garages and boundary walls are the most common culprits.
Climbers and wall shrubs are a popular solution to this problem, providing attractive year-round cover and connecting hard and soft landscaping. Alternatively, tall foreground planting can be used to break up that solid block of colour.
More original solutions include vertical planting, below, or wall pots.
Sculptures, garden mirrors, wall art and water features can also make a stunning addition to the garden. Below, wall art and mosaic.
