A range of height levels gives variety and interest to a garden, whatever its scale. Elements that create instant height include barriers (walls, fences, screens or trellis), overhead structures (pergolas, arbors or canopies) and play equipment, such as a child's swing. Various planting items, including trees, shrubs, bamboos, climbers, hedges and perennials, gain status when paired with low plantings, below. When installing new elements for height it's important to consider your budget...and patience. Young trees and shrubs are less expensive, but they take time to gain height. Built structures cost more, but they make quick work of vertical space.
