Everyone has had that snooping neighbor that we want to prevent from seeing into your garden. For many people, their garden is a place of relaxation and they want to establish their privacy inside their garden. Use these creative ideas to help establish privacy in your garden.
Just putting up a set of lattice screens so that they block most of the view of your patio or garden will do the trick for most people. You can get them for pretty cheap at the garden and home improvement stores. The best part is that they look good too. If you want to add extra privacy grow vines on the lattice screens to fill the holes.
A lattice trellis is a large lattice screen that is specifically designed as a privacy shield. They were originally used on the sides of houses to allow vines and plants to grow up the sides houses. They have been converted into fences quite often now.

Another great option is to get a privacy planter. These are large planters that have a lattice-style screen on the back so that they will provide more flowers while still offering a good amount of privacy. These can easily be made by attaching latticework to the back of a planter.
