Sydney is a busy city, and a busy city often results in a noisy neighbourhood. If you’re someone who values their garden as a hidden oasis, then you might be thinking of ways to optimise its privacy.
But how can you enjoy your urban oasis when you have those nosy neighbours poking their heads about whenever they hear a sound from across the fence? Well, it’s easy, really, especially if you have the best landscape architects Northern Beaches have available!
Here are few fabulous ways to privatise your garden in a way that will make it a true space of peace and serenity:
The wooden lattice fence
There is a pretty good reason why this fence has always been so popular among Aussie households: it provides a wonderful avenue for privatising your garden! Not only does it work as a safety partition for your kids and any family pets, but you can also get truly creative with the way you want to make your garden more private.
Think anything from hanging pot plants to growing ivy around the lattices, not to mention growing full flower beds that grow up and up the fence.
The stunning vine growth has always been a symbol of rustic European charm, as there is something about the way these lush, enchanting leaves grow up a fence in outrageous abundance that just oozes elegance.
But notice another thing the next time you surpass a vine fence: you can’t see - or barely hear - anything that’s on the other side! That’s right, vines are truly one of the ultimate ways to optimise privacy for your Sydney home.
This is because they grow in absolute abundance, providing a thick coverage that is impossible to peer through and will provide your home with a charming urban oasis that looks akin to southern France or Italy!
If you live in a standalone home or a lower level and find that there are endless avenues for the neighbours to catch a peak of you then we ask you one question: have you considered the privacy roof?
Not only does the privacy roof provide that much-needed element of peace and tranquillity in a highly urbanised environment, but they also add a touch of luxury to your garden, being a place where you can hang out with friends and family without having to worry about the neighbours spying on your party!
Another luxurious natural privacy classic, the hedge almost cannot be beat when it comes to staying green whilst keeping out unwanted eyes. With its beautiful, lush style and thick foliage, the classic hedge fence is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful ways to spruce up the garden tranquillity, ensuring no prying eyes will be able to see into your garden whenever they feel like a stickybeak.
The classic fence (duh)
Or, of course, you can just have a privacy fence installed. And, although they might not be as naturally beautiful as the gorgeous hedge or vine solution, they still provide ultimate privacy for any homeowner who would simply prefer if those nosy neighbours kept out of their business just that little bit more of the time!
This, and the other four methods of optimising garden privacy, are the perfect way to make your backyard the peaceful, tranquil urban oasis that you have always wanted - get started today!
