Using Privacy Walls In Your Vancouver YardDecember 20th, 2013 | by Admin Deck Experts | in | 0
Good Fences Make Good Neighbors
One way to ensure that you’re not offending your neighbors or engaging them in your business when they don’t want to be involved is to put up a privacy wall. A privacy wall is different from a fence mostly in name. However, privacy walls are usually a bit more than a fence. With a privacy wall, you can also keep sound from traveling to your neighbors property, which may be more important than keeping them from seeing your yard!
The type of privacy wall you choose for your back yard will depend on the proximity to neighbors, the types of views you could obscure, and the amount of visual privacy you want from your privacy wall. Some privacy walls are made entirely of glass. Glass railings can be used to keep out the wind and control sound, but won’t obscure the view. They’re easy to maintain and clean and they are very durable.
But a privacy wall can also be designed to be beautiful. Many fences really look like they’re hoping to keep people out as well as being “trapped” inside. Chain link fences tend to give a feeling of an institution. But if you hire someone to design and build a privacy wall made of stained wood slats, you can create something that actually looks beautiful in your back yard. You can also incorporate green landscaping elements into your privacy wall. Your neighbors will respect your wish for privacy, and they’ll appreciate that you created something that doesn’t make their side of the fence look less attractive.
For people who enjoy being outside and take pride in the way their Vancouver home looks, a custom privacy wall can transform your outdoor space into the perfect place for entertaining, or even a classy spot for an outdoor hot tub. You’ll be doing more than just putting up a severe border between your property and your neighbor’s. You’ll be adding to the overall aesthetics of your outdoor space.
