You may already have a tall fence surrounding your backyard for privacy. Add a touch of natural style to your fence by transforming a portion of it into a living wall. Use it to create a natural sitting area or simply add elegance to your backyard. Consult with a landscape designer to find the style and plant choice best suited for your backyard design.
Potted plants and clumping bamboo can be placed in your yard surrounded by a raised deck to also give you privacy. This can be pricey and may require a little creativity but nonetheless beautiful!
Hedges are another great natural option to consider in place of individual trees, bushes, and shrubbery. You can line your property with a single, tall hedge for a simple, natural privacy fence.

Bushes, shrubs, and trees
A line of well-placed trees, bushes, or shrubs can provide a natural wall of privacy for your outdoor spaces. Natural greens are known for having a calming effect which makes them perfect for your personal backyard oasis. Again, consult with your landscape designer to integrate natural walls into your overall landscape design.
