You’ve done your research, and you’ve chosen the perfect fence to accommodate not only the look of your home and landscape but also the needs of your family. While you enjoy its look and function, you do feel that it could provide your family and friends with more privacy. Here are five ways you can make your fence more private.
Hedges and Gardening
Vines, hedges, and other plant life can help add more privacy to your existing fence. You can plant hedges or even trees that will grow higher than your existing fence height. They will also be customizable to your style and will blend in nicely with your landscape design. It’s probably the most discreet way to enhance privacy.
Fences provide the perfect location for adding technology to your landscape. Attaching speakers or even a water feature that will cover some of the conversation in your yard is the perfect way to add some privacy. The music or nature sounds from speakers will also be a great boost to the atmosphere of parties and other social gatherings that you’ll host in your outdoor living space.
Add A Screen
Privacy screens are sleek, simple, and easy to install. They are weather resistant, breathable, and in some cases, even customizable if you’d like to add your favorite image. Dark colors provide the highest degree of visibility blockage and may even provide some shade to the area.
If your fence has panels that leave gaps between them or even underneath your fence, you can fill those spaces to create more privacy. Use vines, ivy, slats, or lattice to block unwelcome viewing into your space. This technique will also create a rustic design element.
Build Up Your Fence
Extending the height or length of your fence to cover more of your property is a great way to create more privacy. It’s one of the quickest ways (rather than waiting for plants or trees to grow to the desired height) to achieve the results you’re looking for.
