Some time you just want to be by yourself or you just don’t want to hear your next door neighbor on their cell phone. You just want to relax with some quite time with no interference or you really want to sit out in the warm sun without the neighbor’s basketball bouncing through the patio and over-top of the grill. The answer just might be a phone call way and just around the corner.
Designing a landscaping that creates a soft, quite, natural, privacy barrier can change the whole dynamics and enjoyment of your outdoor living space. There are many ways to address privacy barriers other than building an eight foot tall fence.
Softscapes – One of the best ways to landscape for privacy is the addition of trees, shrubs, plants, and flowers designed in such a way that the line-of-sight is deterred and the normal day to day sounds of our neighbors and local traffic are muffled. Layering the plants allows for the larger plants to be designed on the outside of your yard creating a taller barrier and providing a place to nestle in the lower bushier plants to the inside for more subtle noises.
Hardscapes – Designing decks and patios for privacy is another way to soften the neighborhood noises and allow for more privacy. The addition of Pergola and Trellises will not be able to hide the entire yard, but it will allow for private areas for your and your guest.
Decorative Walls – One of the best ways to add privacy is to use Decorative Walls. They can be used around the slops of the yard to create new living spaces or gardens. You can also add an attractive addition to your patio or pool area that could include decorative fencing on the top edge for maximum privacy.
Water Features – This is a unique way to design a new outdoor living space that is peaceful and relaxing, but it will also mask the noises of the neighborhood. The addition of a fountain or waterfall will also muffle the sounds from the air conditioner, street traffic and conversations from your neighbors. There is just something about the sound of a water feature that is relaxing and soothing to the ear.
