Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can help you personally. I did manage to find a few relevant links that might help you out:

Alternatively, are you able to use a trellis along that length? And plant vines or creeping plants along it? Might be an option that you could trim back to stay thin, but I suppose it'd take building a fence of trellises first, maybe not feasible.
Hopefully you get some better answers soon, wish I could be of more help.
