How To Transform Your Fence Into a Privacy Fence


Add these features to your fence to get more privacy.

Privacy is important to all homeowners. No matter whether you have a great relationship with your neighbors or not, at a certain point you’ll want some privacy. You may have even considered adding a privacy fence to your home. But did you know you don’t need to have a privacy fence installed to get more privacy? You can add some elements to your existing fence to transform it into a privacy fence. Here’s how.

Use A Privacy Screen

Adding a screen to your fence is a simple and effective way to boost your privacy. This is especially useful if you live in an area around tall buildings. People in these buildings, or neighboring houses in general, could potentially look at your property from their vantage points. Essentially a privacy screen is an additional fence located on the inside of your fence. This option is helpful for people who don’t want to worry about infringing on their neighbor’s property.

Extend Your Fence

You could also extend your fence by making it a little bit higher than it was. This will give your fence an extra element of privacy while also adding an element of functional design. It’s important to make sure that you follow your local regulations when you are considering extending your fence.

Add A Lattice

During the time your fence was installed, it may have been done so with too much space between its different parts. The space in between the posts or links in your fence can provide the perfect opportunity for prying eyes. Adding a lattice to your fence will add a barrier that makes it harder for people on the outside to see into your yard. In addition, putting a lattice on your fence is a relatively simple process. It doesn’t require much in terms of construction and it will help with air flow in the warmer months.
