You’ve heard the phrase “in the privacy of your own home”, but you probably also want to enjoy that same privacy in your yard. This can be a bit more difficult to achieve when people can see in your yard. Enjoying some fresh air and the outdoors can be done it private, you just have to know how to get that privacy.

The easiest way to enjoy privacy in your yard is to put up a fence. There are a variety of fences to choose from, and the one you have now may not be giving you as much privacy as you prefer. Those nosy neighbors might mean well but you don’t want them looking through your fence to see what you’re doing.

In addition to privacy, fences provide safety and help keep your kids or pets in the yard while keeping strangers or other animals out. With a variety of fencing options, you can opt for private, semi-private, or more public options. One thing you should do is to check your local zoning regulations to find out if there are fence height restrictions and if you need proper permits.

If you’re looking for even more privacy, consider using some combination of plant life and a fence. Hedges provide a good deal of privacy and something attractive to look at. You can set up a lattice inside your yard if you want a certain spot with extra privacy. Add some vines to your lattice panels for a nice private area. Vertical gardens and bamboo are other natural options to provide privacy and a serene setting in your yard.
