Here are some tips in creating a more secluded environment.

Your home should be your quiet oasis away from all the stresses of your day. It’s where you go for a little peace and quiet, and plenty of privacy! However, sometimes your backyard doesn’t give you the privacy that you need. Check out these helpful tips to make your backyard the stress-free escape zone.

Green Coverings.

Plants are a great way to naturally add more privacy to your yard while maintaining the beautiful aesthetics of your yard. Strategically plant trees, or other tall foliage, in areas where you need a little more privacy from your neighbors. Try planting a row of lemon trees along your property line to block out any unwanted attention.


Pergolas and Paneling. 

A pergola is a great way to help give your backyard more of a secluded feel. It’s a beautiful addition to your landscaping, plus, it helps to add more shade to your backyard. By adding wood paneling, it helps create a breathable screen in between you and your neighbor’s yard. You can create an easy and affordable wooden screen by stacking old pallets and adding a little paint/stain to the wood; voila, you have privacy!


Block Out Noise.

There are multiple components to privacy, including audible privacy. Install a water feature so that you can lessen the noise of your neighbors. Try adding a fountain, for example. Additionally, the soothing water sounds will help to muffle noise from your backyard, increasing your privacy.


When it comes to keeping your backyard private, ensure that you have all the right tools. Ensure that you home stays well protected with the right doors.
