Adding screens and panels within the garden divides it into smaller, more intimate spaces. They are especially useful in predictable plots which have lots of right angles, where they can add interest and heighten mystery. Panels below waist height allow views across the garden. Taller screens separate different areas. Gaps allow tempting glimpses of the garden beyond. Other characteristics to consider include opaqueness versus transparency, colors and textures, and ways to make supports and other frameworks reinforce the overall composition. For example, mixing brightly colored opaque and transparent screens makes a bold statement.
