Backyard Landscape Design: Creating Maximum Privacy

Backyard landscape design ideas for creating maximum privacy can be perfect for any size backyard. At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we understand how important it is for you to have a private backyard space. That is why we offer a wide range of landscaping services, including landscape design for creating privacy in backyard landscaping projects.

Backyard Landscape Design Ideas for Creating Maximum Privacy

Some backyard landscape design ideas for creating maximum privacy include:

1. Incorporating Garden Structures

If you have a small backyard, building a tall, solid fence or stone wall may feel too confining. Instead, consider screening your yard with open panels, trellises, and arbours. Building a garden structure can help create privacy for outdoor activities, allowing you to entertain comfortably. Open panels, trellises, and arbours can also be combined with climbing vines, hanging baskets, and colourful flowers for more privacy.

2. Installing Outdoor Fountains

Even though you might not be able to see your neighbours, chances are that they are close enough for you to hear them. If your house is close to your neighbours, consider adding a fountain into your backyard landscaping to mask the unwanted sounds of your neighbours. When choosing a water fountain for your backyard, make sure to select a fountain with the right amount of noise reduction for your needs.

3. Planting Trees, Shrubs, or Hedges

One of the simplest ways to add privacy to any yard is to plant trees, shrubs, or hedges. Trees, shrubs, and hedges are especially ideal where space is tight, as they can often be planted side-by-side to create a natural looking wall. Unlike walls and fences, trees, shrubs, and hedges can provide year-round privacy without any height restrictions.

4. Creating a Vertical Garden

Vertical gardens are becoming an increasingly popular way to create maximum privacy in urban areas with small plots of land. This is because they can easily be grown on wooden trellises, open panels, or metal grids that have a structured support system. Vertical gardens can also be used to support climbing vines, annuals, and perennials, as well as herbs and vegetables.
