You've designed your own perfect backyard sanctuary - complete with colorful plants and flowers, a cushy patio set and, of course, a grill to cook up some tasty meals. Then you realize with your neighbors' overlooking windows and balconies, you are seriously lacking in any backyard privacy. Though the you might enjoy your neighbors, you likely want to enjoy your own personal space outdoors sometimes. Find out how you can get an exclusive backyard retreat with these inspiring ideas.
A trellis can block your neighbor's view, but still let in some sunlight. There are wooden or metal trellises available and even arching ones, which are perfect for blocking any views from above.
These can be anchored to an already-there wall or poles on either side. Sunlight can still filter through the slats as well.
Attaching curtains to your awning or pergola is a great way to keep things private, and they can easily be removed.
Using potted plants is perfect for apartment living when there's hundreds of prying eyes from the other balconies surrounding yours.
Artsy-looking privacy screens can serve their purpose and also make for an interesting focal point.
Instead of placing all your plants in the ground, install baskets, pots and planters on a vertical wall or fence.
A pergola is ideal when the views into your backyard are from above. Include hanging plants for more privacy and beauty.
A bamboo wall works quite well in Asian-styled gardens, in particular.
Climbing vines are nice to look at while offering you the privacy you need.
Panels made from materials like acrylic can give your yard an chic, modern look. Accent lights placed behind the panels can add to the ambiance.
Including a fireplace may give you the right amount of coverage without beng too closed off, and makes your backyard more inviting.
