Hi all, I'm looking for an alternative to wooden fencing and someone mentioned a decorative painted metal fence to me but I haven't been able to track any suppliers down. I only need about 8-12 feet of fencing to cover a garden shed, I dont want the maintenance and rotting of a traditional wooden fence and I'm in quite a windy site. I also really want to grow climbers up the fence to soften the effect and from previous experience when I used a wooden trellis just as the plants really just started to mature the fencing let it down, i.e. fell apart! Does anyone have any ideas please?

it might not be what you are looking for, as it's not decorative, but if there are any places near you which sell stone, often the stone is delivered on a palette with the stone held on top in a steel (galvanised) mesh - the weave being about an inch or two. a lot of climbers will happily grow up it, and it's cheap, if you can find someone with some spare. a stone yard may have some they're discarding.
