Before you select vines to grow on a garden structure you should take into consideration the nature of your structure and match it to the vine. (For instance, the effect of an elegantly designed support would become lost under a dense-leafed climber, such as grape vine or Dutchman's pipe.) Also, ask yourself whether you would like a perennial or annual vine, a flowering vine, or would you like the vines to yield edibles as well. Consider whether the variety you choose will drop flowers or fruit that may stain lawn furniture or flooring if it is going to act as a covering to an outdoor area. Muscadine grapes may be a great vining plant but wouldn't be recommended as a choice for over a seating area.
