    Hi poppikin, how large/small is your shed? What aspect does it have, sunny, shady etc? Not that many evergreen climbers that will not damage your shed (presuming it is wooden). Couple of suggestions below but these will likely completely cover your shed rather than climb up supports on the side of your shed. You could also consider wall shrubs such as Garrya or Ceanothus.

    All excellent suggestions Blackstart. My neighbour, who always wants an immediate result, purchased a half a dozen Photinia (Red Robin) 18 months ago for shed hiding purposes They do appear to do the job quickly but require pruning/trimming several times a year.
