With all your neighbours within sight, it can be hard to unwind and enjoy your patio time. A plant screen is the perfect way to create some privacy, not to mention some cooling shade.

Anything green is good, in our books, so it’s no wonder that people love to fill their homes, offices, rooftops, balconies and patios with lovely leafy foliage.
