Ways to Increase Your Home’s Privacy

A privacy fence is a great way to make your yard a relaxing escape.

This Fall, you may want to take in the weather around your home by relaxing outside. Whether you want to keep pests out or just want some peace and quiet, we’ll walk you through several options (that can be used separately or combined) to make your backyard more private.


Privacy Fences

A privacy fence is a good option for making sure your backyard is closed off from the outside world. These fences make it harder for people on the outside to look within, ensuring that you can use your backyard as your own personal escape. Privacy fences normally don’t have gaps in between their panels. However, you can turn your current fence into a privacy fence by equipping it with lattices. Lattices, which can be particularly effective with chain link fences, obstruct the view of your backyard from the outside by filling in the spaces in the fence. Additionally, you can use a lattice that is a bit taller than your fence to create more privacy. Lattices are also highly customizable, meaning that they can be used with a wide variety of fences.


We offer residential fences made of custom wood, galvanized chain, PVC vinyl, ornamental steel and more, so you’re sure to find one that suits your home.  As always, it is important to be aware of the zoning laws in your areas when making any modifications to your fence.


Hedges and trees provide a natural way to ensure a private backyard. They can be visually appealing and make backyard space seem less closed off than it actually is. However, in the fall, this option may be slightly less effective because of the trees’ leaves falling to the the ground. Consider using evergreen foliage if you are using this strategy.

Automated Gate System

Our automated gate systems can be used to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that only the people who are supposed to be on your property have access to it. Having this extra level of security allows homeowners to spend more time relaxing. We offer a variety of mechanisms for our entering gates, including touchpad, pushbutton, and card swipe. Our experts can help you decide which gate system would be best for your property. We take the type of dwelling, safety concerns, distance from the dwelling, and other factors into consideration when providing our recommendations.
