There's some cool designs out there, but I've never seen them in an actual setting in person. I would think they'd dry out and become brittle after a few years Are they available at a large landscaping type nursery locally?
Not that I know of...I'd have to order it.
You normally see it like the first picture below (too see-through) but thewillowfarm.com has many other designs...some kinda funky (like the second one [I do like it though])....I could plant stuff in front of it (if I could figure out what) so it would blend more.
I have an iron fence and have planted a bunch of arborvitae in the sunny area along the fence to block off the neighbors but have a shady area that I need to block off and those will not grow well there and in fact end up losing the greenery from the bottom up.
