My neighbors yard is full of garbage, so I'd like to cover my chain link fence so I can enjoy my yard this summer.  I was thinking either a bamboo type mat, or something to weave through the fence.  It's gotta be weatherproof and cheap.  Any ideas?

Why not plant some flowering vines, like cardinal climber, or cypress vines, just to name a couple.  You'll get the added benefit of attracting hummingbirds.

ya, I thought of that, but there is no sun at all back there.  I guess there are plants that still grow in the shade.  The only problem with that is I'll have to wait a couple of years for it to fill out and I don't think I'll be living here that long!

The particular vines I mentioned are annuals, so they grow pretty fast.  And they do well even if they only get a couple of hours of sun a day.
