It is not uncommon for homeowners to avoid using their backyard due to a lack of privacy. Living in a crowded neighborhood or off a busy street can make it difficult to find solitude in your outdoor space. Whether you are bothered by street lights or nosey neighbors, if your landscape feels exposed, you may limit your time outdoors. To reap the full benefits of your property and create more living space for your family, a privacy screen can be considered.
Trees Make Excellent Privacy Screens
What if you don’t like the thought of installing a brick wall or metal fence to gain privacy? You don’t have to! Trees and shrubs can make an excellent privacy solution. In fact, privacy trees are one of the most sought-after landscaping services. The right trees and shrubs can border your property, shield your family and create much needed safety and comfort in your own backyard. Best of all, privacy trees represent an environmentally-friendly and naturally discreet option that can complement or blend in with your existing landscape aesthetics.
Are Privacy Trees Right for You?
There are many reasons that homeowners invest in privacy trees for their front, back or side yard, including the following:
- You have a pool or hot tub
- Your kids frequently play outside
- You have a dog that is easily distracted by neighbors, cars or other dogs
- You like to host parties or gatherings in your backyard
- Your neighbors live extra close to your property line
- You enjoy your alone time and solitude
- You are bothered by street lights and noise
- You want privacy but don’t like the sight of wood, metal or brick as a barricade
