Vines for the home landscape

Published: Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 09:05 AM.

Vines also can be used to transform poles, posts, and even some shade trees into more interesting landscape features.  The eye appeal of walls and fences also can be enhanced by a covering of vines.

Vines are very useful for creating tropical effects in the landscape.  They also provide interesting contrast for hall and passageways, where it’s often hard to grow shrubs or large plants. Vines do very well in confined spaces, providing interesting plant life where otherwise there might be none.
