Cultivating Privacy in a Backyard or Patio (Featuring Affordable Options!)
Your backyard can be a wonderful retreat where you can get away from it all, connect with nature, and quiescence, and perhaps even enjoy a little solitude.
That is if your neighbors aren’t too close.
And even if they are, you can use these 4 unique and practical ideas to create the feeling of a little extra privacy in your outdoor spaces – yards and patios included.
Build a Living Fence
One of the most affordable and inventive ways to create some privacy in your backyard (notwithstanding the fact that it takes a little work) is to build a living fence.
Now, we’re not saying you need to plant and maintain a hedge – not even close. There are a variety of fast-growing plants that you can use to create a “wall” or “fence” in short order and with substantially less work.
Bamboo and sunflowers both grow marvelously quickly (several inches per day, in some cases) and can be easily and affordably planted around a perimeter to create a thick, green barrier in a matter of weeks at most.
You can also set up some mesh or wire and encourage vines to grow up it – like honeysuckles, ivy, or morning glories. Some of these will even offer you (and the birds, butterflies, and bees) some blooms!
Create a Pergola and Hang Baskets
Looking for something more permanent than a living fence? Build a pergola or buy a pergola kit and build it in your backyard – then, you can hang baskets from the perimeter which will help to shield out the interior.
Using a pergola has the added benefit of enabling you to string it with lights or cover the top, so you can be out of the elements if you so choose. Plus, it’ll last longer than annual greens planted as a surrogate fence.
Build a Fence
Of course, you also have the option to build an actual fence. That can be as expensive and labor intensive or as simplistic as you need it to be, as there are both affordable and very costly fencing options.
But, of course, this is the most permanent and reliable option.
