Ways to Achieve Privacy in Your Yard

After a long day in the office, on the road, or running around town, sometimes you just want to come home and sit in your yard to recover. Of course, if your neighbors are also doing the same, and their kids and pets are running around, or they're mowing their lawn, or even having a group of friends over for a cookout, it can feel a little invasive when they can see your every move. At Paradise Landscaping, when we help you renovate your landscaping, we can also help you find a way to add privacy to your yard so that it's always like coming home to paradise.

Here are a few different ways we can help you add privacy to your yard. While you may still be able to hear the people surrounding your home, but sometimes it's just nice to know that there is separation to make you feel more alone. Check out these beautiful options to include in your yard.

Tiered Hanging Pots & Vines

You can add privacy to your porch by hanging pots with vines on one end. This could make a perfectly cozy nook to sit and drink your morning coffee or enjoy the delightful evening breeze. Kick back and enjoy the space, while also having greenery creating that wall that you need for privacy.


This is a pretty obvious answer and one that many people go with, especially if you have pets. There are many fencing options, from metal, wood, vinyl, chain link, etc. The style you choose will depend on your budget and the look you want to achieve in your landscaping, as well as the purpose. If it's just for privacy, you can opt for a lower cost fence, but if you want to keep a pet in, you might have to have it installed in a specific way so they won't dig under the fence.

Outdoor Privacy Screens & Curtains

If you're looking for something more temporary, you can set up privacy screen that will block the stares of others, but can easily come down and move with you should you be in a temporary position. You can also hang curtains from your porch to add a touch of elegance while still helping to maintain the privacy. These curtains will blow in the wind, though, so you may want to find a way to secure them at the bottom before they knock the glasses off your picnic table.

Make A Garden Wall

You can put posts up in your yard with bars between them, and then hang potted plants from them! This is a beautiful way to separate your area from the others, especially if you only have a small patio/yard area. You can also use these pots to grow herbs, flowers, and other pot plants.

Hedge Wall

If you don't need to keep anything in your yard (ie: dogs or children) a hedge wall can be a sophisticated way to secure privacy. We can not only help you install these hedges but then we can help you with your landscape maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks. These hedges will need to be trimmed on a regular basis to keep them in their correct shape and we'd love to help.

Sound Barrier

Don't forget that part of privacy isn't just what you can see, but what you can hear. We can install water features at the Lake of the Ozarks to help mask surrounding sounds. Waterfalls are a wonderful way to truly surround yourself with nature, and improve your privacy just through what you hear.
