garden screening ideasIf you’re looking for garden privacy ideas, you probably live in a densely populated area or have a nosy neighbour.

Whatever your reasons, we’re here to help! You’re lucky enough to have some outdoor space, and in the urban sprawl that is the housing market, a garden is a commodity you don’t want to pass up. Even if your neighbours are great, you still shouldn’t have to make small talk every time you step outside.

That’s why we’ve put together our handy guide to garden privacy ideas. We’ve packed it full of design tips to get you started. From towering trees to bamboo fences, our quick fixes will help you reclaim your outdoor space and make the most of your hard-earned privacy.

How to make an overlooked garden feel more private

Before we dazzle you with our carousel content, check out our 6 key considerations for you to get started. Consider hiring a gardener or landscaper for a seamless installation.

  • Hedges – Artificial or living, dense hedges like Thuja Occidentalis Brabant are a quick and easy way to ensure your privacy.
  • Trees – Not only are they great for air quality and nature, but they’re also tall! Perfect for keeping you sheltered.
  • Screen walls – Consider bamboo for a sustainable alternative or opt for a decorative metal design such as these Alhambra beauties.
  • Fences – Sometimes a traditional solution is the best solution. Just be sure to bury it deep enough to avoid storm damage.
  • Garden walls – For those looking for safe and secure privacy, consider a garden wall instead.
  • Combinations – Incorporate some artistic flair by combining one or two of these privacy options. Screens and hedges or walls and trees are popular combinations.
