q how to make an easy hiding fence in the terrace
There is no wall that allows a pergola to close the view of the neighbors. What could I do? It can not be too heavy because it is the roof of the apartment. Thank you

    you could install some lattice or trellis around the edges, put pots around the bottom and plant climbing flowers to create a flower wall.

    build trellis or lattice and plant pots around the bottom with climbing flowering vines for a pretty flower wall.

    Use very tall planters with perennials grasses or large evergreens.

    Sand paint and build a three sided frame out of free shipping pallets. Slide it over with the open side away from you. Free screen with a contemporary linear look!

    Run some 2x4's along the bottom base & just under the top edge of the wall. Screw in some privacy fence boards into the 2x4's creating your fence. If you ever decide to move, simply unscrew them & take them with you. To fill the holes, use a little white play-doh & wipe over each hole with your finger to make it flush with the wall & it will dry hard like the wall. Wiping over them will blend in the color of the wall's dirt to the new white of the play-doh & you'll havta look close to see the difference. It'll be like you didn't even have a fence up when you move with hardly any repair cost. Hope this helps. :)

    Plant Bamboo in lite weight troffs. It is cheap and grows quickly and you cannot kill it.

      I love this idea for anywhere you'd like a bit of privacy. Doesn't cost much. A trough for the bamboo is great for keeping it from spreading into a yard area. And the green is a cooling colord for your area.😊

    I agree with Wendy Decker, it's just about the fastest growing plant out there and gets very tall. You can also trim it if it gets out of hand and I've heard you can train it. I think the build the in fence sounds nice if you owned it. Also if possible, attach a tall post into the two farthest corners and buy a Triangle Sunshade, not really sure of they're actual name. Then all you would have to do is attached one corner to the house and one corner to each post. Then all you would have to worry about covering up are where you attached to the house with one eye bolt and where you attached the two post to the edge of your Terrace. This way it blocks some view and gives you some shade. Hope this helps. Just Google Sunshades .)

    Potted bamboo makes a good screen.

    ld My goodness - where do you live?! I would have to start with some shade! Look online for some free-standing metal gazebos
    (preferably with metal roof because the canvas will rot and rip about every summer). There are some pretty large ones. Some come with (or you can order or make) side screens or solid material walls to enclose them. I like the idea of the potted climbing vines or bamboo but if containers of dirt would be too heavy you could run green plastic "garden fence" and weave artificial vines.

    I agree with the bamboo suggestions. Depending on your weather conditions, there are all types of bamboo that survive cold and hot weather. Also for shade you could try a canvas anchored to a few weighted poles if it's not too windy.

    You indicated you wanted something light weight and sorta portable.
    So get some rolling clothes racks, take several strips of decorative cloth and attach it to the top and bottom bars and voila you've got screens you can position and reposition as you please. You can get some throw pillow covers and fill them with gravel and pile them around the bottom for stability. During really sever weather you can roll them inside. You can use an outdoor paint to protect the frame from rusting.

    Word of caution with the triangle cover...these take such a large amount of wind and have to be grounded many feet into the ground with cement to keep them from tearing away/out from where they are attached. We looked into it for our patio in Tucson and discovered the investment was far too great for the area and our park owner was unwilling to contribute do to insurance issues.
