How can I make my yard more private?

Homeowners often strive to make their yards more private. As a fencing company, we receive a good portion of our calls and emails from homeowners who are hoping to add some privacy to their outdoor living space. Here are a few tips to help make your backyard oasis more private. 

 

Fencing

As an experienced fencing company, we know all about the many benefits of adding a fence to your property. In our opinion, installing a high-quality fence is the #1 way to add some privacy to your yard.

A tall privacy fence also has the added benefit of increasing the security of your property and home, reducing noise, and adding aesthetic appeal. 

Landscaping

A tree, multiple trees, a hedge or an assortment of plants can all help to add privacy to your yard. However, make sure you have a solid plan before getting started. You want to plant the right things for your space and home. If the trees you’re considering are going to block all your sunlight in 20 years, you may want to reconsider the type of tree you are planting. Don’t forget about how much the roots might grow, as well as the maintenance involved.  Make sure you are making a sound decision when it comes to privacy landscaping - one that is going to work for you long-term.

Water Features

While fences can help to reduce the noise in your yard, and dampen the noise that you make, it isn’t likely to create a “cone of silence”. If you feel like all your conversations can be overheard, consider installing a water feature in your yard. This will help to muffle any sound and help your conversations to remain private.
