Hide the downspout with a trellis. Hide your rain spout by transforming into a decorative climbing support for your favorite flowering climbing vine. I really like this idea and it looks great too. - Gardening For Life
Planting a clematis trellis is on my 101 in 1001 Days Goal List - it's in fact! I love this idea of hiding the downspout by building a trellis around it. Not what I had in mind originally - but this goes on the list of ideas for sure!
