Small Garden Ideas: Landscape Design Must Have Privacy Screening

Why Use Screening?

Screening Provides Privacy

If you have a small garden, it is likely you are feeling a little naked and exposed like you're living in a fish bowl? If you have an exposed window, people will always stare, that’s just how it is! Perhaps the view of your neighbours garden is unsightly (it's been long since they did some gardening and mowed the lawn). Consider privacy screening as part of your garden design especially if you have a small garden and you are in close proximity to your neighbours.

Screening Provides Protection

Screening also provides protection from our harsh coastal winds if used as an effective wind break, whether you are in a small garden or a large one. Trees make excellent wind breaks but should of course be considered in your initial garden landscaping design.  A screen made of slats is a quick and easy solution for blocking views.  A creeper may be strategically planted to grow and cover the slats. A pergola will add to your pretty landscape picture and add privacy if you live in a valley.
