A yard or patio is the perfect spot for enjoying the outdoors, whether that means playtime with your kids or quiet relaxation after a long day. And while you may like your neighbors, you may not want to see and hear them every time you venture into your backyard. If more privacy interests you, consider these options below:
Fencing-- Probably the most straightforward solution, fences have long been the go-to for homeowners seeking seclusion. Be sure to check city ordinances and HOA policies before installing one.
Hedges-- Shrubs likeboxwood and privetare commonly planted along property lines. Choose an evergreen variety for year-long privacy. Make sure it's suited for your climate and matures to your desired height.
Screens-- Stylish and effective, foldingwood-panel screensadd a nice visual element while blocking unwanted views. Opt for a weather-resistant screen designed for the outdoors.
Trellis-- The lattice configurations on these simple wooden structures offer an element of privacy. They're also a perfect host for climbing vines and plants if you'd like additional coverage. Just be sure to check the sunlight and care requirements for the vegetation you plant.
Pergola-- Apergolahelps block views from second-story windows and balconies. It can be as simple or intricate as you'd like and will offer a degree of shade along with privacy.
Drapes-- Budget-friendly and chic, panels help screen off your patio and can be moved as desired. Make sure the fabric is suitable for outdoor use or spray it with a water-resistant coating.
Vertical Garden-- If you're looking to increase privacy and also want to grow your own herbs, consider a living wall. You can buy prefabricated tower planters for easy installation.
If neighborly noise is a problem, awater fountainis a relaxing, sound-muffling solution. Consider your outdoor space and choose the privacy-adding options that work for you.
The biggest compliment I can receive is the referral of a friend or family member.

"When moving here from Seattle we weren't sure exactly what we wanted, but after chatting with Violet she immediately understood the "vibe" we were after and showed us properties that matched perfectly. Violet was easy going yet incredibly professional. It was apparent after one day of working with her that she was very experienced and knowledgeable. We are incredibly happy with the property we chose and the help she provided. Not only would we use Violet again in the future but would refer all our friends and family."
