As the weather brightens up it’s only natural that you’ll want to spend more time outdoors relaxing and entertaining. But just like the inside of your home, your garden should also have a certain level of privacy and there are plenty of privacy solutions that you can try.
Here are some top tips for creating more privacy in your garden.
Add new fencing or trellis
One of the most practical ways to improve privacy is to upgrade your fencing. While low fences or walls may be fine if you’re very friendly with your neighbours, sometimes you don’t want anyone peering into your garden. Adding taller fences will provide better privacy so you can sit back and relax without prying eyes!
Plant trees and shrubs
Adding extra greenery to your garden is not only a great landscaping tip but is ideal for shielding the boundaries of your outdoor space. Fast-growing plants such as bamboo are a popular garden feature and can add some height so you are less visible when outside. As long as you keep everything well maintained they will continue to look great and work as additional privacy.
Create a private seating area
What’s better than sitting outside and reading a book or enjoying a few drinks with your loved one? The last thing you want is to feel people staring at you, so building a private seating area could be a great option. A pergola or area with covered decking will provide you with somewhere that’s not exposed as well as making your garden a more practical space. Not only will this protect you from neighbours’ eyes, but it will still allow for light around the rest of your garden, and will be decorative too and can be used all year round.
