Your home, including your outdoor space, should have a sufficient degree of privacy. Nothing is more bothersome, after all, than relaxing on your deck or outdoor patio and realizing people have been staring for some time. Fortunately, there are a couple of simple and cost-effective ways to improve the privacy of your outdoor space.
- Repurpose old shutters. Instead of throwing out those old window shutters, you can upcycle them into a folding partition. Just attach them together with a few hinges, and position them around the area of the deck you want to keep private. There are also a wide range of portable partitions and privacy walls available that you can check out if you want something newer or more suited to your deck or patio’s existing design.
- Add fast-growing privacy plants.These plants not only offer better privacy, but they can also give a lovely, natural look to your overexposed patio or composite decking. Research some good options that are native to your area so you’re sure they’ll grow and thrive in your yard. Privacy plants and trees may take some time to mature, however, so keep that in mind.
- Consider bamboo plants. If you prefer something more striking, you should try bamboo. You can use it to build a high wall of green around your patio or deck for improved privacy while adding a nice, Zen-like feel to your outdoor space. Just make sure to pick a non-invasive species.
- Get some privacy planters.Since we’re talking about greenery, you might want to go for some planters with a trellis. Over time, they’ll create a green and flowery wall of privacy around your deck. Choose planters with rolling wheels so you can easily move them around when necessary.
