How to Make Your Yard Tastefully Private

Landscape LightingThere are a few different ways that you can make your backyard or front yard more private. Privacy can be accomplished through tasteful, modern measures, through plants, or through new materials for fences and walls. If you’re interested in remodeling your backyard and introducing a much-needed update, the following examples will be a nice addition to any outdoor space.

Why You Should Add a Wall or Fence

If you have young children or pets, you might want to consider a modern wall or fence design for your yard. This will help you to keep a better eye on your loved ones, and keep them out of trouble. It can also help to keep intruders out, such as deer or other wildlife that may be interested in helping themselves to your garden. A wall or fence can help with nosey neighbors, too.

Consider New Materials and Designs

If you want to add a fence or wall to your yard, the design and material options are seemingly endless. Your fence could be made of horizontal wood panels (instead of vertical), or plexiglass and wood, for example. Not up for a fence or wall? If you’re interested in adding a pergola or similar structure to your yard, consider adding an outdoor curtain for additional privacy.

Make Your Yard Private With Plants

If gardening is one of your favorite pastimes, why not prove it? Make your garden grow to new heights — literally. Plant new shrubs and trees, or help your current plants to grow taller. You’ll be able to create a more natural barrier between your yard and the outside world. Another way to achieve new heights: add raised flower beds, so that your garden appears at various levels. Or, add a row of larger-than-life potted plants for a makeshift “fence.”

You could also add a lattice fence, trellis, or similar open structure — with a modern twist. There are many modern designs available now that will look more tasteful while still being useful. These designs will allow your yard to feel more open, while also allowing for another way to show off your plants. You could add roses or other vines to add a more romantic or private element to your yard, too.
