5 Simple Ideas to Add Privacy to Your Backyard

With summer right around the corner, you will more than likely be spending more time enjoying your backyard. Do you feel that you have the backyard privacy that you want? If your answer is no, you are in the right place.

We have a few tips to help you create the privacy you want and deserve.

1. Fence

The first thing that probably comes to mind is to put up a fence and this will fix your problem. There are so many different types of fences and fencing materials, that it can make it a bit difficult to choose the perfect one.

2. Bamboo Fence

If you love a tropical and zen feeling, then bamboo is a great choice for creating a fence in your backyard. You can either use it to fill in any gaps in your landscaping or you can create an entire fence with it. 

Keep in mind that bamboo can be invasive which is why you want to choose a bamboo type that is compatible with the environment you live in. You also want to make sure that you can contain it easily. 

3. Flower Wall

A flower wall might be a perfect option if you love bright beautiful colors and you live in an area that has a warmer climate year-round. You might also consider creating a fruit tree wall, where you have fruit trees in planters and they serve a double purpose. You can eat from your wall and have privacy with a view. 

4. Curtains

If you prefer something unique and want a lounge feel in your backyard then curtains can help. You can hang curtains around patios, and decks to create a cozy area to hang out in.  

If you do not have a place to hang them you can put down wooden posts in the ground and then use rods to hang your curtains on the posts.

5. Pergola

If you want some privacy but love your backyard view and do not want to completely block it then a pergola would work. The wood and the columns will offer some privacy but not completely close it off. You can add curtains to your pergola that can easily open and close for even more privacy. 

Another option is to add trellis to the pergola on some of the sides. You can opt to cover one side with trellis, two or three. 

Ready for Some Backyard Privacy?

Now that you know our top options for backyard privacy, you can decide what you love most. Please do not forget to check with your homeowner’s association (HOA), if you have one.

There are some HOA’s that have restrictions on height, material, color, etc. It’s always best to be safe than sorry by double-checking.
