How To: Establish Privacy In Your Garden

Patio Awning

Whether you're hoping to reduce noise pollution, prevent prying eyes or hide an unsightly view, there are plenty of clever landscaping ideas for introducing privacy to your patio, terrace or garden. Here's five of our favourite suggestions for creating an exotic escape this weekend:

1. Spectacular Screens:
The greatest benefit of a privacy screen is that it's less permanent than a wall and can be moved around your garden as you please, plus they're far more cost-effective than having to fence in the entirety of your backyard. Available in a range of materials and varying colours, you're sure to find one to suit your space.

2. Lavish Lattice:
As well as being exceptionally adaptable, the classic lattice can be cut to fit just about any outdoor area. Simply add trialling vines and you'll have a wonderful wall of greenery before you know it!

3. Blissful Bamboo: 
With its stunning evergreen foliage and as one of the world's fastest growing plants, bamboo is a quick and inexpensive way to introduce a privacy screen that'll last throughout all four seasons. We would recommend a spacing of three to five feet between plants for a dense privacy hedge which is perfect for an area with exposure to a road or neighbouring home. 

 4. Purposeful Pots:
Don't overlook the humble pot plant for establishing immediate height in your garden which will keep out any wandering eyes. Try grouping tall plants and shrubs to create a charming wall in an instant. 

5. Adaptable Awnings:
By eliminating bright sunlight, providing weather protection and enhancing privacy on your patio or balcony, an awning is an excellent addition to any alfresco environment. With shade from the sun's intense heat and shelter from the unpredictable British weather, an awning from Caribbean is a sure-fire way to add privacy, practicality and panache this Summer.
