Privacy Please

The one downside to the new abode is that our backyard leaves little to the imagination. A wimpy little chain-link fence is all that separates our yard from the neighbors to the left, the right and the rear. I’m no prude but I would like for the backyard to show a little modesty. So I’m on the hunt for privacy ideas that are a tad unconventional but majorly awesome. Maybe it’s just me being a contrarian, but the tried and true vertical wood-post fences just won’t do it for our yard. She needs something with pizazz. Something like this…

This cinderblock wall from Big Red Sun doubles as a planter.

As does this little number.

I’ve always loved these mid-century decorative concrete blocks. And the time period matches our house.


When all esle fails, I look to nature’s privacy screen: plants.
