Enjoy greater privacy in your backyard and garden with pergolas, retaining walls, hedges, fences, and more. Find out which solutions are right for you.
A Pergola to Stay Dry
Experience the great outdoors underneath a pergola that doesn't make you feel confined, but that protects you from the wind and rain. The freestanding design also makes it easy to move around and change up your layout.
If you enjoy DIY projects, you can build your own small or large pergola using the Toja Grid system. The Toja Grid is a modular pergola crafted of durable, weather-resistant materials that can be customized to suit your outdoor living area. Assembly is simple and straightforward, and there are multiple kits available with different designs.
Let vines grow around your pergola for even more privacy. Grapevines even provide a nice treat.
A Gazebo Free of Mosquitos
Enclosed gazebos offer nearly complete outdoor privacy, creating a comfortable refuge where you can relax. Choose a size and style that complements your backyard design, nestle it in among your landscaping, and draw the screens closed to keep out the bugs.
If you want outdoor privacy during the colder months of the year, consider a fully enclosed, all-season gazebo that keeps out the chilly winds.
Create an instant sense of privacy by putting up a small-grid lattice, and use shrubs and potted plants for even more seclusion. A lattice also serves as a makeshift fence, keeping away nosy neighbours and offering protection from the weather. In addition to the classic crossed lattice pattern, you can also find updated options like the expandable foliage trellis from Naturae Decor.
You can add curtains to the lattice for enhanced privacy and better wind protection.
A Privacy Fence as a Windbreaker
Privacy fences offer a number of attractive benefits. Not only do they provide privacy from neighbours, but they act as a windbreaker and clearly demarcate the property line.
HOFT Solutions is an excellent option for attractive and easy-to-install DIY fencing that provides great privacy and concealment for your backyard. Even better, you can personalize your HOFT fence with hooks, planters, and shelves. Barrette fences and gates are equally effective and easy to install. The wood panels and matte-black posts offer privacy along with a sleek and modern appeal.
Hedges are a fantastic option for backyard privacy, which is why they are such a standby favourite. You can get just as much privacy as a stockade fence from a tall hedge, which also looks better and attracts birds. Hedges can easily extend taller than a fence for additional screening.
Retaining walls are a highly effective way to build up a garden. They not only provide privacy, but they offer plenty of space for growing herbs and vegetables as well. For added height and privacy, you can build a multi-level retaining wall.
Planters filled with vibrant flowers bring extra colour to your backyard oasis. You can also use a row of tall planters to provide extra privacy for your outdoor living space while making it look gorgeous.
Strike the ideal balance of privacy and air circulation with outdoor shades, curtains, or screens. Choose from a selection of different styles and colours for the right shades to go with your outdoor decor.
If your neighbours' second-story windows look into your backyard, then you can secure greater privacy with a patio umbrella. You'll also get to enjoy sun and rain protection and an attractive accent to your outdoor design scheme.
You'll get to choose from freestanding, patio table umbrellas, and tilted patio umbrellas that can provide targeted privacy for any space in your yard.
