It’s always nice to enjoy the serenity of your backyard, your own secluded private place to relax and unwind, sipping wine in your hot tub. But let’s face it, you don’t want your hot tub view blocked with thick walls of cement, or even no walls at all for everyone to watch you.
In this article, we’ll help you find ways to have a pleasant time in your backyard without worrying about your privacy.
Protection is one of the main factors to consider when trying to have backyard privacy. Having great protection will not only secure you, your family, and your property from the strong winds, outdoor noise, wild critters, and lingering intruders but also assure that your pets are safe from harm as well.
Another importance of having backyard privacy is to define your property. It will set neighbors’ boundaries and increase the value of your house. Plus, it also lowers your home insurance costs.
1. Build a Fence
You can build a DIY fence out of wooden doors, posts, and boards that you can customize to create a private area.
2. Plant Cedar Bushes
Cedar bushes help keep your backyard free from gusting winds and rolls of snow. These bushes are also great for keeping your garden topsoil strong.
3. Install a Gazebo
Gazebos are perfect for securing your backyard privacy. For added outdoor glam, use light strings and giant potted plants.
4. Install a Pergola
If a gazebo covers the natural lighting, try installing a pergola. Let moonflower vines crawl along your pergola to provide a subtle cover for your backyard.
5. Half-stone, Half-curtains
A mixture of rocks, bricks, and concrete can create a superb property and pet border. For added privacy, add curtains to metal or wood posts.
6. Add a Garden Trellis
A vertical flower garden climbing a metal trellis creates the perfect outdoor ambiance for your backyard. A trellis will also limit prying eyes from neighboring two-story houses.
A lattice fence is a sturdy option for powerful winds and all-season outdoor privacy control. You could also put flowers in metal plant holders by the side or across to add more color.
8. Add a Privacy Fence
Vinyl or acrylic panels are available, and you can retract them when not using them. Simply roll the fence out to the sides of your hot tub and enjoy the privacy.
For a unique texture, try an Asian-inspired material like bamboo. Bamboos can last as long as 20 years with good care and maintenance.
10. Decorative Screens
Wood slat walls, stainless steel, metal laser-cut dividers, and even Japanese 4-panel wood screens make the perfect partition for your open backyard.
11. Tall Outdoor Fireplace
If you’re looking for a dual-purpose backyard privacy wall, a fireplace deck with a tall chimney can create the perfect barrier for your property.
Whether you choose a vertical garden or a simple panelled fence, having backyard privacy will always protect your property and family.
