Garden Lacking Privacy? Here's What You Need to Do!
There are a million and one reasons why you might want a little more privacy in your garden. You might have nosy neighbors or live on a busy street where every passer-by is free to see your outside space.
You might have security concerns, either from potential burglars or for your young children. Or, you might just crave a little shade from the beating summer sun if you live in a hot climate.
Whichever your reasons, adding some basic privacy to your garden seems like a big task. But if you can set aside some time - and a little money - it is straightforward enough to make a start on creating the private garden of your dreams. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Contact your local authority
There may be certain restrictions on the sizes of borders you can create in your garden. They can vary in counties, so it’s necessary to contact your local authority and find out how the land lies. The last thing you want is to spend a fortune on expensive, high fences, only to receive a knock on the door from your local planning department. It’s also advisable to discuss your plans with your neighbours. Like it or not, your new borders and fences could spoil their enjoyment of their gardens - and neighbourly fights over such matters are never pretty.
