Faux Pothos Leaves Privacy Screen is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Hide-a-Way Piece I already had one of these. I bought it three years ago and have left it up since. Still looks great! I bought it to give additional shade for my hostas. It worked. It also provides added privacy so I purchased a second one. I have been very pleased with this item!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered A Big Ugly Wall / Eyesore With It-- Looks Great! i have a privacy wall that is covered in roofing material. when it was new it looked techy and cool. but 5 years old now, it has faded to heck and looks cheap and like an eyesore! i knew i wanted to cover it in some fake uv-resistant plant and i did look high and low. my first choice was a boxwood roll / screen, but it ran about $17 / sq foot and would be $2k total for the square footage i need. so needless to say, i looked for alternatives! my neighbor turned me onto improvements. she has the ivy screen. i used to love ivy until i heard rats love to make homes in it. now i don't even want fake ivy! these "pothos leaves" were the other option. ;-) i bought 3 panels, needed about 120 square feet, but these are 50 square feet each (5' high x 10' wide). i waited till they went on sale. (there are site wide like 25% off sales, 2-3x a year i believe...). when i first unpacked the screens i was not particularly impressed. these did not in any way look real to me, or even close enough that they would fool someone. they didn't look horrible-- they just didn't look particularly real. (see the shot of the screen on the floor, right next to some live ivy.) but i knew, this would be installed at a bit of a distance, and what i saw was that if you are about 3' away-- then it all blends and it doesn't look too fake. i knew no one one would be that up close and person to the screen if i used it as covering, so i gave it a shot. my wall was 6' high, and this is 5' high. i needed another 1' on the bottom, and that's why i bought a third screen, to cut 1' sections across, and make the two screens 1' longer. i'll tell you, if you need to trim / lengthen the screen in any way, it is a very very very time consuming process. once you make any horizontal cut on the screen, the strand holding the leaves in place (going down), are no longer connected and you need to tie them down or the strand will come loose and all the leave will fall off! so it took HOURS to tie down the loose ends of the strands, once i cut the 3rd panel to lengthen the other 2. it was amazingly slow, tedious and boring but i figured ok this is my weekend project. put up and shut up! i "clamped" the loose strands down with garden "sturdy twists" which are like sandwich bag twists, easily available in the garden department of any hardware store. once i added an extra foot to each screen, i then joined the two screens in the middle since i didn't want it separating in the wind or showing gaps or material etc. then... i hung it with some garden training wire, which is much thicker than the twist ties. i secured the screen every foot. the screen is not heavy, but i didn't want it blowing in the wind and lo and behold... this is how the wall turned out. it really shocked me how good it looked when done! the ugly faded wall is gone! there's a wall of what looks to be lush greenery. even if you know it's fake, it still works because it's clean and attractive. and since it is more than 3' away, it does look lush and "real" enough! overall, very very happy with the covering now that i have it up. time will tell how well it lasts in the direct, constant, california sun. but it certainly exceeded my expectations in the way it looked when up and on the wall. tailoring it to size was extremely time consuming. but i'm happy it's done, happy it's up and right now, very happy with the purchase. will update in a few months if anything particularly noteworthy changes! ;-) ps-- one other note. i think for best results you should also "fluff" these up. moving, mushing, sprucing up the leaves in many directions to there is variety and texture to the coverage. each strand is the same and if you don't muss it up it looks cookie cutter with everything very symmetrically and identically pointing in the same direction, which only adds to the too-fake sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from privacy screen these privacy leaves made a perfect screen attached to plastic 8' by 4' lattice from lowes. the enclosure was designed around a spa and table and chairs. the entire fence was 28 feet total length. i think this came out perfect. i hope it lasts as advertised.

"Roll up at end of season"

Is it necessary to roll this up and store during winter months? Or are you able to leave it up for all seasons if you so choose? Is it durable enough?
Asked by: Alyssa
Sturdy enough to leave up all season. Very durable plastic finish. You could disassemble at the corners and leave the fencing flat for storage, but it cannot be rolled.

Can they be pieced together for more height?

I would like to attach these to vinyl lattice panels on a trellis that is 10' high by 10' long. Is it possible to blend two rolls of any if these ivy products to cover the extra height without it looking totally fake due to the 'seam'?
Asked by: ImprovingTX
If you do it right it is possible, but remember, it is an artificial product so from far you can even "pass" but from near anyone would notice it is not natural, but still looks nice. I'm posting a picture of the end so u can have an idea.

Faux Pothos leaves privacy screen

Can you cut it to make it fit right??? How do you suggest attaching it to a chain link fence that is on concrete?
Asked by: Tracyalls1980
It would be hard... they are all interconnected and to make it straight would be difficult not to cut the plastic meshing that holds the leaves on...

Faux Pothos Leaves Privacy Screen

1. Can I get this screen in the shorter size? 2. Is this screen different from the ivy ones? Pictures seem to show a green mesh behind leaves, which would make it more "private". Thank you for your answer.
Asked by: Reptar
If you want more privacy, then this is the item to purchase. I have used this piece for three years in my back yard. It is very durable. I also have the ivy trellis. It is more for looks but adds a bit of privacy. I have been pleased with both products.

Can the privacy poles be extended or combined to increase height up to 10ft or more or do you make them taller?

I would like to put the Faux Pothos Leaves Privacy screen above a 6ft wall in my backyard to block out neighbors view in my yard from their second floor window. I would like to have it free standing using the poles, but the pole you offer is only 5ft tall. A 10 ft or taller pole would rise above the 6ft wall to accomplish exactly what I need. Can the poles be extended or combined, or do you sell them taller?
Asked by: geedubb
Thank you for your questions. Unfortunately these poles do not extend higher than what is offered. Nor can they be combined.
