Four one reason or another, having a fence installed around your home may not provide you with the privacy you desire. This can be due to the fence simply not being high enough or because the fence is chain link or has an open design. If your fence does not provide you with the privacy you need, you may want to do other things to add privacy to your home. One great option is to create natural screens with plants to give your home the privacy you desire. Here are four ways that you can create natural screens for your home:

1. Using Trellises And Climbing Plants

Trellises can be a great way to have a variety of different natural privacy screens. This can allow you to plant seasonal climbing plants, shrubs and small trees that can be trained to grow on the trellises. If you also want to be able to change the appearance of your privacy screen, this great option will allow you to change the plants on the trellises for a different look.

2. Evergreen Shrubs With Dense Foliage

Evergreen shrubs are a great choice for natural screens. There are many different types of shrubs, such a juniper, which are popular choices for natural privacy screens. There are even some species that can grow tall and be a great solution for large properties and tall privacy screens. These can be combined with other landscaping design to give your natural privacy screen an attractive look.

3. Fast Growing Canes, Grasses And Bamboo

There are also many choices of canes, grasses and bamboos that can be used as a natural privacy screen. These have the benefit of being a fast growing solution to add a privacy screen to your home. Many species of cane and bamboo are tall and can give you a taller natural privacy screen. If you have areas at the top of hills or on rock formations, natural grasses can be a great addition to these areas to give you the privacy you want.

4. Trees That Can Be Planted In Dense Rows

Trees can also be a great solution for tall privacy screens. Hemlocks are a commonly used for this because some species can grow quickly and are resistant to wind. These trees can be planted in dense rows to provide your home with more security. If you have a larger property, you can plant more rows of trees to provide your home with more privacy.
