BUILDING AN OUTDOOR PRIVACY SCREEN

BUILDING AN OUTDOOR PRIVACY SCREEN

If you have a very wide yard and have too much space to spare that everything in it looks very small or your fence may be too short and you’re worried about your nosy neighbors taking a peek at everything that goes on in your backyard.
A good solution is to build a privacy screen. You can simply separate spaces within your backyard, add some needed privacy and at the same time, make decorative accents to suit your furniture and your plants.
