When the sun is shining, you don’t want to spend all of your time inside your home — you want to be outdoors. However, while relaxing in your outdoor living space, you shouldn’t worry about curious and unwanted eyes. Here are several unique ways that you can increase the privacy — and the curb appeal — around your property.
1. Use Your Landscaping
If you want to beautify your outdoor living space and don’t want the hassle of a traditional fence, consider bushes, shrubbery, trees, and other landscaping items that offer privacy. For example, a large and beautiful hedge can add some contrast to your yard as well as some colour. However, keep in mind that some landscaping items, such as a hedge, can take some time to become fully established and provide the privacy that you desire.
2. Buy a Backyard Screen
A backyard screen is a simple and fast way to add some privacy to your yard. It allows you to put up a temporary wall around certain areas of your property. You can find these privacy screens at local home improvement stores and they are available in a variety of styles and options so you can easily find a product that matches your outdoor décor.
3. Hang Curtains
Curtains are a great way to add some colour, shade, and privacy to your outdoor living space. If you have a pergola or another permanent structure, use curtain rods, hooks, etc., to hang your curtains. For short-term options, you may consider hanging curtains between trees, railings metal poles, etc.
4. Install a Trellis
A trellis is another way to add ample privacy to a certain area of your yard and some colour. You can create large and extravagant trellises or very basic structures. If you choose to make a trellis on your own, you can create this privacy wall as large and wide as you desire. This is an excellent option if you are looking to improve the privacy on just one side of your yard, rather than your entire property.
