How a Landscaper Can Create More Privacy in Your Backyard


Your backyard should somewhere you can go to relax after a long day. It should be a place a solace and refuge. Unfortunately, many homeowners lack the privacy in their own backyard to achieve this. Whether it is a nearby street or nosey neighbors, it may be time for a landscaper to help you create a more private outdoor space

You don’t have to build a wall to gain more solitude in your backyard. In fact, there are some very discreet and attractive ways that a landscaper can boost your outdoor privacy. Garden Lights Landscaping is proud to offer privacy landscaping services to homeowners and business owners in the Atlanta area. Here are some options we may consider to add seclusion in your personal backyard:

Install a Privacy Fence

Erecting a tall, solid fence around your property can provide instant privacy and block the view from outside. Opt for materials like wood, vinyl, or composite for durability.

Plant Evergreen Trees or Shrubs

Strategically plant tall, dense evergreen trees or shrubs along the perimeter of your yard. They will act as a natural barrier, adding privacy and creating a green wall that blocks unwanted views.

Construct a Trellis or Pergola

Install a trellis or pergola and train climbing plants such as vines or jasmine to grow on them. As they mature, these plants will create a beautiful living screen that adds privacy and visual interest.

Use Tall Ornamental Grasses

Planting tall ornamental grasses, like bamboo or fountain grass, can create a natural privacy screen. These plants provide a sense of seclusion while adding texture and beauty to your landscape.

Install Outdoor Privacy Screens

Consider using outdoor privacy screens made from materials like wood, metal, or bamboo. These portable screens can be placed strategically to block views from specific angles while adding an aesthetic touch to your outdoor space.

Build a Living Wall or Green Screen

Create a living wall by installing planter boxes or using vertical gardening systems. Plant a mix of trailing vines, herbs, and flowering plants to create a vibrant and private oasis.

Design a Water Feature

Install a water feature such as a fountain, pond, or waterfall in your yard. The sound of running water will provide a soothing ambiance and also help mask unwanted noises while enhancing privacy.

Add Outdoor Curtains or Blinds

Hang outdoor curtains or install blinds on your patio or deck to create a private outdoor retreat. These versatile options can be easily opened or closed as desired and come in various colors and materials.

Utilize Privacy Hedges

Plant dense hedges, like boxwood or privet, along the edges of your property or around specific areas. Regular trimming will help maintain their shape and height while ensuring privacy.

Incorporate Landscape Berms

Build mounded landscape berms using soil and plants to create natural barriers and add depth to your yard. These elevated areas can provide privacy while also enhancing the overall aesthetics of your landscape.
