Outdoor Privacy Screens

Outdoor screens are more and more prevalent as we settle into suburban life or metropolitan living, but still desire a bit of seclusion, serenity, and private life in our own yards and gardens. Some outdoor screens, such as fences, may run the span and width of your whole yard; others, such as lattice fragments, may define a certain outdoor space or obscure an unappealing feature. Still others made of living material such as hedges or bamboo can start trifling and grow with each passing year.

The most elementary function of an outdoor privacy screen is, as the name designates, to provide some amount of privacy to a portion of your garden, yard, or other outdoor living space. Outdoor privacy screens can do much beyond that, though; they can also offer defense from the sun and the wind, can hide or camouflage unpleasant elements, and can also be used to accent the architecture of your home, features of your garden, or certain outdoor areas.

Outdoor privacy screens can be divided into two primary types: those made of non-living material, such as wood, metal, or laminate vinyl, and those made out of living material, such as hedges, grasses and trees. Non-living privacy screens can be as rudimentary as a tall wooden fence all over the backyard. Other choices include free-standing, pre-fabricated privacy fragments, usually compact on the bottom two-thirds and with a lattice type grate on the top third. Metal trellis work can also be utilized as a privacy screen. Living privacy screens are formed by planting and training shrubs to grow as privets, planting bamboo in a row, using elevated grasses as a type of fence, or wisely choosing and planting trees that will produce a barrier and privacy screen. A third type is probable, as well: a mixture of non-living and living materials that, together, constitute one whole outdoor privacy screen. An example of this third type would be a segment of metal trellis covered in flowering vines, or a combination of hefty grasses and lattice sections, or wooden fencing supporting English ivy.

Outdoor privacy screens serve an essential purpose: they form a private area in your yard or garden so that you can relish the space as much as you enjoy inside your home. Privacy screens also serve to outline and help create certain outdoor living spaces, such as a sheltered, shaded corner with a bench for reading, or a separated hammock for napping, or a kid’s play area safe from the vision of passing traffic, or a comfy outdoor eating area for outdoor dining with friends.

Selecting a Product

So what type of privacy screen is right for your space? Below is a simple guide in choosing the right privacy screen.
Think about your space

Be clear about what you want to screen – is it just photographic or is it acoustic as well? Create a list of necessities your privacy screen must meet.

Entry spaces can truly benefit from the use of privacy screens. This is one area where they are becoming increasingly popular.

Decorative privacy screens can be utilized to divide large open plan spaces to generate ‘visual’ rooms. They can also be used to create an acoustic ceiling or wall lining in high noise areas.

Develop a design idea and think about it again!

There are numerous graphic styles and concepts you may choose from, so think about which style would optimally suit the interior look and feel of your own home. A screen is a sculptural bit which you can style in a really personal way; you may even desire to have a family picture laser-cut into the design.

Choose your design materials

Today’s material options and styles are numerous, and seeing contemporary architectural materials meeting with customary concepts is nothing short of remarkable.

Consider the maintenance, cost and quality of your screen

There are some privacy screen materials that require some amount of care. In choosing the material of your privacy screens, make sure you think about how it is maintained to ensure that you will be able to properly maintain it in the future.

Compare the costs and quality of all these materials. Choose a privacy screen that is within your budget without compromising the quality.
