When you’re relaxing in your backyard, the last thing you want is nosy neighbours looking in and staring at you. When it comes to your personal space, privacy is a must, and the following landscaping ideas can help you create an outdoor space that is both beautiful and private:

Plant bamboo

This will offer you the privacy you crave and you can plant them directly in the ground or in pots. You can also purchase bamboo plants that are already at your desired height if you want privacy right away, so you will have a few options and can choose the one that best suits your needs. Bamboo plants are fairly inexpensive and will also help break the wind, so there are a number of advantages in addition to privacy.

Plant in layers

Tiered planting is very attractive aesthetically and is also ideal for privacy, so planting your garden in layers will help keep your neighbours away. To achieve this, you must start planting taller layers of trees and shrubs around the border of your home and then add medium-sized shrubs or plants followed by smaller perennials. This will add a ton of beauty to your outdoor space and will elevate its appearance, and if you do this properly, you will be able to create a privacy screen.

Install trellis fences

This is a wonderful idea that has been popular for a number of years and is especially great for privacy when it is covered with plants and vines. You need to first install this style of fence around your yard, after which you need to plant creeping vine plants so that they can grow and fill in the gaps. Ivy and honeysuckle are great options but there are a variety of plants you can choose from.

Install lattice screens

This is another great option that will provide you with privacy and is very affordable. This type of fencing is made of thin strips of wood that have been woven into a decorative pattern and can be built at the height that you desire. You can also purchase pre-made lattice screens at most home improvement stores, which are not expensive, so this is definitely an option worth considering.

Add fencing

If you want complete privacy, solid fencing is the answer because this will help keep nosy neighbours away. This is the most popular choice when it comes to landscaping and privacy and because fencing is available in a wide range of sizes and styles, you will be able to find exactly what you’re looking for. It can be made from wood or plastic and can be twelve feet tall or more.
