5 Tips For Increasing Privacy in Your Garden

5 Tips For Increasing Privacy in Your Garden

In many ways, the garden is like an extra room in your home. It’s a place to relax, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the weather throughout the year. But while you can usually be confident that your home is private, have you thought about privacy in your garden?

If you want to enjoy your garden without worrying about privacy, we’re here to help. We’ve put together this list of five top tips for increasing privacy in your garden.

1. Outdoor blinds

Outdoor blinds are a really effective way to create small, private areas in your garden—for example, around a patio or decking. This gives you the opportunity to spend time outside without having to worry about the neighbours or passersby looking in. Plus, they’re available in a range of different colours and styles, so it’s easy to ensure they match the rest of the garden, as well as your taste in home décor.

2. Use potted plants as a natural fence

Placing tall potted plants around the perimeter of your garden is a creative alternative to hedges, and also helps to make your garden more private. Potted plants tend to be a good substitute for trees, as it’s unlikely they’ll grow out of control.

3. Think about where you put your shed

Sheds, greenhouses and other outbuildings are useful when it comes to privacy, as they can be near low fences to stop people from looking over and seeing into your garden. If you’re planning to have a shed built, think carefully about where you’re going to put it.

4. Climbing plants and trellises

Setting up trellises and allowing climbing plants to grow over them is a great way to increase privacy and enhance your garden’s appearance. Flowering plants in particular can make your garden both more private and more pleasant to be in.

5. Install a water feature

Privacy isn’t just about what other people can see – it’s also about what they can hear. Installing a water feature helps to generate continuous background noise, so you can talk in the garden without having to be concerned that someone will overhear you.

Now that you’re aware of some of the best ways to increase privacy in your garden, it’s time to start thinking about having outdoor blinds installed. Get in touch with us here at Ahe Shutters and Blinds today to find out more about the range of outdoor blinds we offer.
