Our fences, pergolas and lattice covers can help create privacy for your yard as discussed in the following article from HGTV Remodels.

“When in a garden or on a patio, you want to feel that you’re in an intimate space — in a room not exposed as if you’re in the middle of the driveway or street,” says Risa Edelstein, president of the Ecological Landscaping Association.

That’s not so easy when your back yard looks out on your neighbor’s hot tub, your tranquility is constantly interrupted by road noise or your house sits in a new development with scant tree canopy. Here are some strategies for creating more privacy:

Fences. Privacy settings for fences range from private (solid tongue-and-groove or board) to semi-private (slat, picket, spindle or lattice) to rather public (rail). A topper made of lattice or circle cut-outs makes a solid fence feel less oppressive.

When considering materials, keep in mind the maintenance involved. Wood typically needs to be resealed, stained or painted every few years. Low maintenance options include powder-coated aluminum, vinyl and composite, all available in neutral shades of white, brown, black and green. Check local zoning regulations to ensure you have proper permits and do not exceed height restrictions, which are often lower for parts of the yard visible from the street.

Lattice. Lattice screens are a versatile and easy-to-install building element. They can be employed as semi-private walls on a deck or patio — or as the underpinning for a porch or deck. You can use lattice to corral an HVAC unit or garbage cans. Available in various weaves and grid patterns, lattice partners well with a range of materials and textures including stone, brick and board fence. Flowering shrubs, roses and vines add more privacy as the lattice becomes a textured back drop.
