Dressing up blank exterior wall

Sheri_CAugust 22, 2012

One side of my double wide MH is visible from the driveway. This side is basically a blank wall. We have installed a window to make this side of the MH more attractive (and also to enable us to see outside on that side of the MH), but it is still pretty boring. We've landscaped by adding a flower bed with a small curvy path down the middle and have planted some arborvitae to (some day) help cover the blank wall, but until the plants grow more, I'm stuck. The only thing I can think of is adding a nice large ornamental trellis as a focal point to "dress it up" a bit. Any ideas/pictures would be appreciated.

A home in our park has a flat sheet metal image of a lighthouse in solid matte black decorating their road-facing blank wall. It is quite large, and looks really nice.

Put up a trellis or tack up a piece of chicken wire and plant Clematis. It will quickly cover the entire wall and look beautiful.

I like the idea of having climbing plants covering up the blank wall. That side of the trailer gets brutally hot sun in the summer, but I think I could find something that could take the heat--if not a clematis maybe an annual bougainvilla? (It would be an annual in my area anyway). Thanks for the suggestions.
