Privacy is usually at the top of the garden wish list. If you currently feel like your outdoor space does not offer you any privacy, there are a number of different ways you can enclose the space and add some privacy. Let’s take a look at some of the easiest ways to make your garden more private below…
Easy Ways To Privacy In Your Garden
Grow a vertical garden
One of the best options for anyone looking for some extra privacy is to create a vertical garden. Not only will you be able to tackle your lack of privacy issue, but also you will be able to fill your garden with vegetables and herbs so you can reap the benefits throughout every season. After all, any solution that adds to your approach to sustainable living is a good option, isn’t it?
Climb plants on a trellis
Another option you should consider is climbing plants on a trellis. If you go for this option you do need to care for the plants diligently as they grow and creep upwards. As the plants fill the lattice, privacy is achieved. Of course, it will look much better once the plants have grown, but at least your privacy solution is instantly dealt with.
Build a fence
Perhaps the most obvious solution to your privacy problems! This is something that you could build yourself or if you are not confident, you can engage a reliable fence installation company, such as Fencemakers. Not only do wood fences look beautiful and have that delightful rustic feel, but they are better for the environment too.
You can also create a breezy coastal vibe and add privacy by strategically placing swaths of fabric in your garden. This is a good solution because it will not cost a lot of money.
Grow a hedge
Growing a hedge will take a bit of effort, but it will b well worth it. You need to carefully consider the type of plant you are going to go for. Make sure you find out how often it needs to be pruned and watered, what sort of light it needs, and how high it will grow. Privet and boxwood are classic options for hedges, but perhaps you would rather go for a flowering bush? If so, laurel and rhododendron both look stunning and can grow up to around eight-feet tall.
As you can see, there are many different ways that you can add some privacy to your garden. From growing a vertical garden to getting a fence installed, you are bound to find something that fits in with your skill set and suits your current outdoor space.
Found your blog through the Self Reliance Challenge. I look forward to reading more of your posts. Finding privacy is a challenge when you live on a floating cabin. Boats passing by can see just about everything outdoors. Fortunately most cabin owners on our lake a summer cottage people. We have a spot 25 minutes by boat up the lake all to ourselves most of the time from fall to spring. – Margy
Hello Margy! Living in a floating cabin is so wonderful! What beautiful views you must encounter! I guess privacy would be an issue though. Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post! I’m glad you are enjoying the challenge!
Great ideas! I have a vertical garden container, but have yet to add any plants to it. Once we have the space I want to add more, such as drapes and a hedge. Thanks for sharing!
Hello Ann! Thanks for taking the time to read my posts! I love my vertical gardens. They save so much space and look great too! Good luck with yours! I know you will love them.
