Just completed a little work in the backyard for privacy with some lattice. Next step will be to plant some vines to work there way up the lattice.

Thanks for the comments. Not sure if I’ll do another post and lattice just to finish it off. Think I’ll enjoy the yard for a few months and get to some other projects in the house.

That looks great. Consider jasmine for your vine. I also just put up some lattice behind my shed/workshop to hide the garbage can and other stuff. I planted jasmine a few weeks ago and it has taken off. It needs to fill in but has stretched throughout the lattice. It will also smell nice when the flowers bloom.

That’s a great-looking backyard and patio. Not sure how it grows in Colorado but Clematis is a good climber here in Ohio.

Thanks for all the kind words and the ideas on climbers. Ya know I’m only in charge of big things like the economy and politics my wife makes all the decisions on when, where , what and how high. I’ll give her your ideas and see what she decides.Thanks again.

Oops forgot the wood is nothing real special. We tried to match the posts on the patio. I used 4/6 treated posts then covered them with 1×6’s and staned to match. The lattice is the plastic lattice (which I don’t like) in a redwood color. The lattice doesn’t move and you have to make sure it’s straight and it bends and curls real easy.lLooks good though so can’t complain.
