Looking for more privacy in your outdoor living spaces? There are plenty of creative and affordable options that provide beauty and function.
INCORPORATE ONE OF THESE PRIVACY ALTERNATIVES INTO YOUR LANDSCAPE…
GARDEN SCREEN – In many neighborhoods, the homes are much closer together than many would prefer. If you don’t want to spend the big bucks on a full-yard fence, try adding a garden screen to your outdoor living spaces. What makes this accent piece popular, is it provides privacy without sacrificing the view.
TRELLIS WALL – This option delivers both privacy and decoration. Designed for climbing plants, it delivers an artistic flair, as well as a privacy method. A trellis wall is also perfect for vining produce, as it keeps fruits and veggies raised and away from ground-dwelling pests, and increases sunlight exposure.
VERTICAL GARDENS – Frame your exterior space with a luscious floating garden. Think of a vertical garden as a backdrop. This is a great option for small spaces, like a porch or a balcony. A vertical garden requires less maintenance and adds beauty and privacy to your outdoor living spaces.
TREES & SPRUCES – Border your property with towering trees and/or spruces. The advantage of using evergreen trees as a privacy “fence” is they extend color all year round without losing their leaves and are relatively low maintenance.
ORNAMENTAL GRASSES – If you’re searching for a more natural alternative, ornamental grasses are a great choice to help lessen the neighbor’s view, as well as deliver a native approach. Ornamental grasses are best suited around a deck or front porch but can be incorporated anywhere throughout your landscape.
