Front garden pillar hedge died. Should I let the ivy use this as a climbing frame or plant another plant with the same dimensions there? Somebody I spoke to said paint it green as that way you get to keep the structure!! Never heard that one before!! Anyway any suggestions are very welcome. :)

It will need removed at some time as it will naturally break down, even with Ivy covering it. I would remove the dead hedge and replace it after fertilising the area.

Paint it? Now that would be a challenge for a graffiti artist!

Yes, its time to bite the bullet and start again. The ground will need a loit of improving first as those hedges are very greedy feeders.
