Hide a View - Or Need Privacy? 

Pick one that is right for your space.

Whether it is a view of the neighbors….

or a view of utility gauges….

or to limit a view from the street…..
there are many options available.

Gates can enclose your gardens, yet be inviting.
Overhead screens of vines can offer much needed shade, and a free standing planter can break up a boring wall, as well as extending the vertical garden.

Panels can be classic or funky! 
Make your space private and cozy. Screen just a corner, or the whole garden.  Enjoy.

That's a nice variety of options you've shown! I'm giving Boston Ivy a try and hope I don't regret it!

Yes lots of options. I do have my privacy fence but have also surrounded the back perimeter with flowering shrubs. Just waiting for them to all grow up now.
