How to make your backyard more private

Everyone wants their home to be their sanctuary, with the backyard being their garden oasis. However, if your garden is within easy view of your nosy neighbours and any passers-by, it is probably a good idea to install a few appendages to retain that feeling of isolation. 

Here are some of the easy ways in which you can make your backyard more private.

Install a higher fence

It sounds obvious, but many people overlook the notion of adding to their fence to block the view of unwanted, peering eyes. This is really the easiest and most cost-efficient way to do it, and if you already have fencing surrounding the garden, all you have to do is add lattice to the top to ensure nosy neighbours can no longer see in.  

Try interesting landscaping

Landscaping can be one of the most creative and beautiful ways to keep prying eyes out of your garden. If you already have a fence and are not interested in latticework, this might be the perfect option for you. Plant extra bushes, shrubs or hedges along the fenceline: this is a great way to add privacy to the home whilst generally invigorating the property. This method also allows more light in than when using extra fencing so it is great for entertaining. 

Build an enclosed pergola

Through installing stylish outdoor blinds, your entertainer’s space becomes a comfort, sophisticated area that friends and family will love to spend time in. Outdoor blinds come in a range of block out materials that not only keep the sun’s heat out in summer but also the cool in winter whilst providing you with a fully private space to relax.

Retaining walls

Retaining walls are durable and can withstand the harsher Australian climates. Not only this, but they private a heightened level of privacy to any home where this may be an issue whilst holding a wealth of lush plantation.
