How to add Privacy to your Backyard Design

Posted February 6, 2020 in Blog, General, Landscape Design, Water Feature

Do you find yourself avoiding your backyard because it lacks privacy? If you cannot envision an attractive design that adds privacy to your backyard and have no idea what it should cost, you are probably feeling frustrated and lost when trying to block out your nosey neighbors, hide an unattractive view, or carve out a private space for sunbathing, reading, or relaxing in your backyard.

At MasterPLAN Outdoor Living, we believe that you should feel secure and comfortable in your backyard, and we don’t think you should feel overwhelmed and lost when visualizing attractive privacy solutions for your backyard!

This is precisely why we have helped hundreds of homeowners- just like you- transform their backyards into functional and flexible outdoor living spaces that provide the perfect combination of comfort, privacy, and security.

Let’s explore some attractive design solutions that will add privacy to your backyard:

Pergola Privacy

Pergolas are the perfect way to add style, shade, and privacy to your patio without completely blocking the sun or stunning views of your outdoor living space. When properly designed and constructed, a pergola should provide just enough dappled sun to enjoy without feeling like its beating down on you and your loved ones.

When choosing a pergola to add privacy to your deck or patio, consider a custom pergola designed with a traditional aesthetic and simple details as we did for this homeowner’s backyard transformation Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Water Privacy 

Your privacy extends well beyond eyesight. Adding a water feature to your backyard will provide relaxing, soothing sounds and aid in providing backyard privacy. Building a water feature in your backyard will not only keep your conversations private, but it will also help drown the sound of traffic and other inconvenient noise.

When choosing to add a water feature to your home in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, consider giving it the look of diamonds falling at night as we did for this homeowner’s backyard transformation in Royersford, Pennsylvania.

Planting Privacy

Many homeowners make the mistake of using privacy planting around only the perimeter of their property. With the right design and plan, you can select low maintenance plants that provide color, texture, and privacy all year long and throughout your entire backyard.

When choosing to add privacy planting to your backyard in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, consider a variety of plantings that display a lush green element. This will add balance to your outdoor living space as it did for this homeowner’s backyard transformation in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.
