do you think this would work?

We live in town houses, or row houses as some may call them. The back patios are partitioned off by twos, so my neighbor and I share a patio. I love her, I really do bit she always has a bunch of toddlers running around and they climb all over our patio furniture, touch the grill which can be dangerous if it were on and even press their faces up against my door and peer into my house.

So I was thinking of getting a bunch of the long and heavy planters and planting some pretty plants and using it as a sort of fence.

Which plants grow nice and tall with a lot of sunlight, and do you think that would work?

Why not see about affixing a lattice right down the middle and planting some sort of climbing vine or flower?

Exactly my thought.

I'd have to get the permission from management, but that sounds like a good idea....the patio is concrete, how would that work? Would I pot them next to the lattice?

Plant morning glories and put a piece of trellis in each pot.

It is a really good idea, I'd just have to get permission from management and they can be assholes

Yeah you need something that will be green year round. That's a good idea!!

I agree with the trellis if possible because it won't take up as much space.

Long planter box with a lattice in it. Plant anything that climbs.

Yes, you'd pot them next to the lattice. Sometimes you can buy lattice that's meant to be stuck into larger pots...You'd need like 2-3 but it'd be very pretty for both of you to enjoy :)
