Are you looking for an outdoor privacy screen? It’s not always a meek matter of one-type-suits-all. Palatial mansion or pint-sized plot, every yard has a spot needing a privacy fence or backyard retreat, to keep you away from your neighbors’ prying sight. Whether it’s for the area near your spa, pool, patio, outdoor kitchen, or just an area for enjoying some solitude, you’re going to need to fathom how to create that outdoor privacy screen, barrier, fence, etc.
Outdoor privacy screens can be made out of either non-living or living materials. Privacy screens serve to accommodate a particular area, create privacy or hide an unappealing feature. They work by obstructing the view of and the noise from passers-by, neighbors and proximate traffic, thus creating an outdoor area with evidently defined boundaries and some amount of privacy.
Non-Living Outdoor Privacy Screens
Non-living outdoor privacy screens can be made of fencing, lattice work, trellis, or free-standing fence sections installed in specific places. Fences are the most robust and cover the most expanse of outdoor space. Trellis and lattice work, because they cover open spaces, won’t create far-reaching privacy. However, when used together with evergreen or flowering vines, they can offer a great amount of seclusion as well as an exquisite view. Free-standing fence sections will leave open ends, but they are eye-catching, easy to install and helpful for covering landscapes or defining areas.
Living Outdoor Privacy Screens
Living outdoor privacy screens can be made from a hedge, a row of shrubs or grasses, a row of bamboo or a row of trees. As they grow, the area they cover and protect will be larger and the privacy they afford will become more complete. A row of bamboo can be just as sturdy and impassable as a tall wooden fence. A tall boxwood hedge creates a very safe border. Other living screens, like grasses or more spaced-out shrubs, offer characterization to an area and somewhat block the view, but also allow a feeling of candidness and connection with the remaining areas around.
Beyond creating privacy, outdoor screens can be used to highlight certain features of the yard or garden. By placing a screen around a water feature, for instance, or a particular flower bed, it will become more protuberant because the off-putting background is covered by the privacy screen.
