We start by asking; do you want total privacy that no one can see in or out? Or are you wanting some openness to the features? A tall fence can provide the height and ultimate privacy. And – if you want to add a decorative element, choose one with lattice detailing.

Or, if you are wanting a fence but with more of an open design, a “stripped-down fence” , as Better Homes and Gardens calls it – can give you feature Plus, by simply adding plants, such as a climbing rose – it add some color and soften the tones of the fence.

A tree line, over-sized hedges or ornamental grasses can create a subtle but intentional barrier between your property line and the neighborhood to get the exact level of privacy that you are wanting.

One more idea to round out this blog – bamboo can provide privacy in a natural and zen way! A fence made of bamboo or even just planting bamboo in your outdoor space can create a light and airy feel.

Once you know the amount of privacy and composition you are looking for, then the fun part begins – design! Some questions to think about; do you have a color scheme for your outdoor space? Are there certain materials that you are a fan of such as wood, metals, wicker, etc?
