There’s nothing better than enjoying some peace and quiet in the garden. With the sound of birds tweeting and a light breeze, our gardens can be places of serenity and calm. However, if you live next to neighbours who enjoy hosting loud barbeques every weekend or your garden backs out onto a busy road, finding a quiet 10 minutes may be difficult!
Luckily, there are ways to block out the sounds of traffic and noisy neighbours! Here are some of the most effective ways to reduce noise pollution in your garden.
Fill your garden with water features and wind chimes
If you want to replace the sound of pedestrians walking by with something more pleasing to the ear, then you may consider filling your garden with water features and wind chimes. The soft gushing of water and tinkling of wind chimes will fill your outdoor space with more subtle sounds, helping to drown out some of the noises that frustrate you the most. Water features and chimes may not be able to block out louder noises (e.g. cars beeping) but they can help to muffle the hum of traffic when you’re trying to relax.
Landscape with hedges and trees
Separating your garden into zones with hedges and trees could also help to drown out the noise pollution in your garden. Using hedges to line the perimeter of your garden won’t be as effective as installing an acoustic fence (see our next tip!) but they can be used to create cordoned off areas. To muffle noise pollution, it’s best to landscape with large hedges and trees with dense foliage. These will also help to purify the air and keep your garden cool in hot weather!
Install acoustic barrier fencing around the perimeter of your garden
Installing acoustic barrier fencing is by far the most effective way to reduce noise pollution in your outdoor spaces. Acoustic barrier fencing is designed to absorb noise and significantly reduce unwanted sounds in your garden, whether you would like to block noise pollution from neighbouring properties, busy pavements or a congested road nearby.
In addition to muffling unwanted sounds, acoustic fencing offers many great benefits. For example, it can boost your garden’s appearance, privacy, safety and security! This makes it a versatile and cost-effective solution to noise reduction.
