Quick job ticked off the liston the wknd - installing screening with a creeping plant to hide our hot water systems. Nothing fancy, nice and easy - does the job!
Fixed it to the wall with 3 heavy duty angle brackets and some Ramset anchors.
At the rate these creepers...creep...the screening will be about 60% covered by next winter.
Just wanted to know what the creeper was that you planted at the base of the screen.
Thanks @TheRoseMan - simple but effective screening to hide those units a little.
I've had the heat pump since Feb when I moved into my house I built and have no complaints. I got it for the energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact. I have two - one to service each flor of my house.
Hi @Kimbo, it's a Climbing Ficus. They're a fast growing climber which I've used before and been happy with. They're quite aggressive so can cause some mischief if they start growing on brittle/dislodgeable things. I'll make sure they don't creep onto my brickwork.
Thanks ProjectPete, yes i went to the heat-pump when my old storage HWS started to have issues heating up, as it turns out i have replaced the element and thermostat to keep it going until i get my new heat-pump installed. I think i might start a new post about how i put the 'slab' in to support my hws, might be interesting for someone. Cheers for now, TheRoseMan.
