We have a basement suite entry that we want to camouflage from up stairs... Any suggestions?

You might attract birds and animals if you grow fruiting vines, you have to watch out out for animals under a deck if you build one. Birds might come to your arbor vines, but I don't think you'd have more droppings than you'd have under a shade tree anyway. I'm desperate for shade over a south facing patio, so the arbor is a great idea.
