A finished outdoor space is a perfect spot to be at one with nature and to relax. However, privacy is often a concern when spending time in your yard. If you are wary of prying eyes, your backyard will feel less like a place of refuge.
Fortunately, you can increase your privacy with thoughtful landscaping elements. If you ask Sherwood Gardens Landscape Design and Development, below are the best plants to enjoy your outdoor space without feeling exposed to next-door neighbors.
Coniferous trees make excellent hedges. Although they do not have broad leaves, they can grow dense enough to block the view. Most conifers are evergreen, and many of them grow quick, which is why they do not take a while to fill in. While they can shoot up to over 20 feet in height, their growth can be kept in check with routine maintenance.
Like any experienced landscaper, Sherwood Gardens Landscape Design and Development recommends these plants to boost your yard’s privacy and to add more colors to it. When mixed with evergreen trees, flowering plants are attractive natural fences that block the public’s gaze and delight your eyes.
If you like instant hedges, strongly consider bamboos. They can grow taller than most ornamental plants, plus they are generally more affordable.
Furthermore, the presence of bamboos could lend elegance to your backyard. Despite their simplistic appearance, their charm is difficult to beat. With dramatic outdoor lighting, bamboos are a sight to behold.
