Can climbing plants enhance a fences strength?
My neighbours fence panels which divide our gardens often come down in high winds. There’s no plants in my garden currently so I’m wondering about planting something in front of it, or growing on it, which might help prevent the fence coming down again. Trees would be too big but climbers, small shrubs, grasses are options. What do you think please? Thanks.

For fence strength I believe it would be better to have a handyman/carpenter reinforce the fence itself rather than depend on plants to strengthen it.
Some vines may grow up and intertwine and hold the panels together, but eventually may become too bulky and the weight could pull the fence down if not adequately structured.
