    Default Screening ideas

    Hey there,
    New to this so i'll try my best.

    Putting up a large decking in backyard, running approx 9 metres from alfresco area to fence, along with patio roof.
    Problem is, as the deck has been elevated 300mm, i need some sort of screen covering next doors property, we have an existing colorbond fence.
    I have thought about colorbond extensions with the lattice inserts, but feel they look old and dated, also thought about buying a sheet of colorbond and cutting the 300mm off 1 sheet and inserting the same way as the lattice, worked out to be approx $40-$45 per 2.3m panel, looking to screen 6 panels. The missus not too Keen, so.........

    Another alternitive was to buy non clumping bamboo panels 1.8mx1.0m, and attach them to the colorbond fence, sitting on top of the new decking. But this is where i'm stuck.
    How can I attach these panels to the existing colorbond fence. These bamboo panels have 3 wooden runners that hold the bamboo together at the back, and prefer no to upset next door by putting holes in ours and their fence, but can drill into our posts on our side.
    Can anyone help with some suggestions?
    Thanks
    Rich

    Plant just in front of the fence with its own independant supports ...no damage to fence and easier to trim, keep neat

    Thanks Jago,
    I've thought about plants and ventured out to various nurseries but didn't like what they offered. Established trees were an option, but the cost of those trees for that area would be pretty pricey. Anything else that somebody can suggest would be great
    Thanks
