From tall walls and chic curtains to plants and pergolas, there are a myriad of ways to enjoy your outdoor space in peace.
While you may adore your neighbors, and occasionally invite them over for barbeques, it doesn’t necessarily mean you want them to have eyes on your property 24/7. If you’ve put a lot of effort into creating the outdoor space of your dreams, it’s only fair that you get to savor it. Creating some privacy in your backyard won’t only feel more comforting, it provides other benefits as well. First, it can help keep the temperature a tad cooler during the summer months. And second, it can potentially protect you, your company, and your outdoor furniture from damaging UV rays.
Depending on your personal style, property layout, and municipality requirements, there are a variety of options to choose from. Scroll through the following patio privacy ideas to get inspiration for an outdoor upgrade.
