8. Create a “living fence”
If you’re looking for a backyard privacy idea that will maintain the natural element of your outdoor space, opt for a “living fence” with tall trees or hedges. Of course the types of trees you use will differ depending on where you live. If you live in a city like Portland, OR, a Douglas fir may be the best option, while if you live in Los Angeles, CA, you’ll most likely opt for birds of paradise or palm trees. While this isn’t the quickest or most convenient option, it’s a great long-term solution for ultimate privacy. A landscape design professional can help create your “living fence” to boost your backyard privacy while also creating a unique and beautiful backyard design.
