Placing lattice on roofs is a common technique on Nantucket, where "New Dawn" roses ramble over porch roofs and tool sheds. I've also seen it used with Autumn blooming clematis on a garage in Alexandria, VA. Very cottagey and charming.


Normally, I prefer a garden flooded with plants but this setting steals the scene doesn't it?
Flowers overflowing onto sidewalks would be a distraction.
