Privacy hedge for bathroom windows

Posted by linda21 Nor Cal (My Page) on

The 2 left side windows in the front of our house are in our master bathroom (toilet and shower)

We are planning to plant a podocarpus hedge on our property line (right side) and then possibly plant a pittosporum and lavender hedge around sod area.

Our front yard is on the east side of the house, so we get great morning and midday sun.

Any ideas of what we could plant to provide a year round screen? We are in the SF Bay Area north bay.

Thanks,
Linda

Planting a large shrub to screen a window or two seems like a bulky way to get the job done. I would prefer a custom lattice structure (with or without a vine depending on your specific needs) as a cleaner, tidier, and easier-to-manage way of obscuring a view in a relatively small space. There would be a lattice pattern and details that work well for your needs.

Wouldnt it be easier to solve this from inside? There is film that can be put on glass to make it look frosted. No one can see in. It is a shame to hide those windows

Great ideas everyone, I keep thinking in line of plant options, but it would be smart to consider adding something to windows or building a trellis or screen.

The windows do have privacy reed glass in them, but when the lights are on at night, it is really obvious when someone is using the restroom or showering.

You could do some very nice screening with some of the 3 Form products. Great range of colors. Very modern and durable . Or Luma-site - Architectural Plastics in Petaluma has some interesting panels.

Or you could use woven metal or recycled metal sheets.

I don't think off the shelf wood lattice would cut the cheeze.
