Vines Are The Perfect Climbers

Vine plants make excellent climbers. They quickly climb and are very hardy with little maintenance needed to live and thrive. Vines also prevent soil erosion, sustain slopes and hillside areas giving them necessary stability and come in a variety of different varieties as flowering, evergreen, fruiting and native species.

Homeowners seeking a combination of privacy and outdoor gardening beauty may want to consider adding vines & climbers

Instead of installing expensive fencing or outdoor walls, a simple lattice can serve as a foundation for a beautiful, living and growing privacy screen. For homeowners looking to add height to their yards without taking up a lot of ground space, evergreen vines can be an easy answer. Besides, vines can provide much-needed shade from the hot summer sun much more quickly than growing full-sized trees. If a homeowner happens to have a steep bank in the yard where they are unable to produce grass, vines can also serve as a crawling ground cover. Homeowners should select evergreen vines depending on where they want to plant them, the condition of their soil and how they plan to support the vines.

Others offer many flowers that bloom frequently, and these can be beautiful near a window or patio. Tall, vigorous evergreen vines can be grown on an arbor to provide shade, and smaller ground covers may be used to decorate other things in the yard or home such as giving decor for a mailbox. English Ivy, Partridge Berry, Vinca Minor and Wintercreeper are top sellers.

Deciduous vines will provide shade on hot days while allowing light to pass through quickly in the winter when they do not have growth. Homeowners can more easily experiment with annual vines regarding design. Most evergreen vines grow well in moist but well-drained soil, but there is a variety of ground covers that can be used in just about any soil and light situation. Evergreen vines are easy to prune and care for throughout the growing season. Ground covers do not only provide all these practical advantages, but there are so many varieties that have beautiful leaves, colorful flowers, new growth patterns and lovely scents.

Soil erosion is sometimes a necessary evil of landscaping. However using the appropriate ground covers for the situation, can stop or at least keep soil erosion to a minimum. There are, however, ground covers that can both climb rocky slopes to halt soil erosion as well as cover areas on the ground that cannot seem even to grow grass. 
 
 
Vinca Minor is a fast-spreading plant. It is one of the more popular slope covers used. It is a fuss-free plant that loves to grow anywhere and will grow in poor soil, on rocks, in the shade or full sun. It does not matter to this plant. It will even increase where grass will not. It makes for a pretty ground cover under shrubs and trees. The vinca minor has dark green leaves and blue flowers in the spring. It will grow to be about 4-5 inches. This plant needs no special care. 
 
The English ivy is another favorite plant when it comes to slope covers. It will spread horizontally and reach a height of about 8 inches. It is an evergreen that does flower, but because the herb is green, it is hardly noticed. The ivy is also helpful at weed control and also is suitable for planting in shady areas under trees and shrubs. The vine is fast growing and very evasive. It does require trimming to keep it under control.
 
The partridgeberry plant is a slow-growing plant that is not very aggressive. It only grows to about 2 inches high. It is a very showy plant with white flowers in the spring and red berries that last through the winter. Along with covering slopes, it is a good cover for bare, shady spots. The partridgeberry prefers moist drained soil; however, it is very tolerant of the cold, and it will keep its lovely color even in the extreme winter conditions.
