Vines have many useful purposes in your landscape. They can screen unsightly views or provide privacy for a patio or porch. For those with limited space, vines can act as dividers or barriers. And a vine placed along a fence or blank wall will break the monotony and help soften harsh structural lines blending the structure with the surrounding landscape.

While some gardeners are purists and prefer either an Annual Border or a Perennial garden, others take a varied approach.

The variation also adds interest and will make your garden a standout.
