What kind of plant is used to climb up trelis

Liz Callahan
The plants on this trellis structure are yews.
Fletcher Steele was the designer for the original landscape design installed in the late 1920's/early 30's. I believe these yews are the original plants from that installation. Steele's design was a 5 pronged brick walk sitting in lawn surrounded by a circle of 3' yews. Our design replaced the brick walk, then in a shaded enclosure, with a more usable mosaic terrace.
As part of a full scale home renovation project the homeowners had worked with their gardener to clean-up the overgrown yews and support them with the ironwork dome support structure. This is a great example of the evolution of a simple garden space.

Erin Lang Norris added this to Smashing Mosaics Stir Landscape Style
Helloooo, yoga sanctuary. I would be over the moon if I had one of these lush alcoves in my backyard. In this private and tranquil setting, a mosaic floor seems like a great hangout.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Look Good From Any Angle (the Garden Edition)
Add artwork. Another way to add multilevel interest is to employ appropriate artwork. This stone medallion is a centerpiece that looks great from any angle. If you are considering sculpture, make sure that its form and dimensions make a statement from every vantage point. A tall, narrow sculpture, for example, would most likely look underscale and inappropriate viewed from above.

As discussed for a previous image, you may consider doing one or more areas of a special hardscaping material (around a fountain for example). This type of river-stone-installed-on-end is called Krokalia and is a fantastic conversation element - people generally love an area done like this because it's so different. Krokalia has Greek origin and has been around for centuries.
