Tips to make your deck more private and enjoyable

Tips to make your deck more private and enjoyable

Spring is here! Now is a great time to be outdoors enjoy the beautiful weather and your patio. Your deck or patio can be a welcome retreat for relaxation, but traffic noise, neighbors who are too close, or an unattractive view can interfere with your enjoyment. A high fence is an obvious choice, but here are some less expensive solutions to help you create a more secluded outdoor space:

  1. Trees, hedges, shrubs, vines, flowers—either in the ground or in pots—are attractive visual and noise barriers.
  2. A canopy or awning will shade you from the sun and second-floor neighbors’ windows.
  3. Build or buy a trellis to attach to the top of your deck railing. Growing a climbing plant at the base of the trellis will add even more privacy, sound absorption, and great looks.
  4. Hang outdoor curtains made of a sturdy outdoor fabric. A variety of colors and patterns is available.

Nice Pat Champion. I am always a fan of a winding path in the backyard leading to a secluded fountain with a bench to relax and ponder. Jeff

These are good suggestions to share. In our community, any physical changes must be approved by the HOA.

My wife and I hung curtains on our gazebo last year, Pat Champion  ... and visually they enhanced the deck immensely.  But beyond that, they made the deck seem cooler too.  Must have been the image of a cool breeze ...

Hello Pat and thanks for some great great suggestions.  We have a cover patio and spend lots of time out these and even have a flat screen to take out there.
