Need help creating privacy. Opinions very welcome.
Hi Team, So my question is, How would you create a sense of enclosure and privacy in this small yard without boxing it in?
Here's my situation: The back of my neighbors home and drive way meet the side of my front yard. I would like to create a cozy space with a cottage garden feel while separating their driveway and blocking some of the view of their large home without boxing my small yard in. We use this side of the lawn for summer picnics and occasionally the kids set up the sprinkler there. The photo is old and currently the majority of the space is lawn with surrounding planting beds. We have also relocated the small tree on the left to the back yard. The existing planting bed running along this edge is about 2 feet deep but could be extended to as much as 4. How would a 4 foot high fence with arbor look here? I'd love to hear any suggestions.
