Outdoor Privacy Screens Video

As the saying goes - good fences make good neighbors - A well designed and well positioned fence or screen can go a long way toward enclosing your private space and increasing your enjoyment of your backyard. These can also be important for controlling wind and keeping pets safe. Lattice is a common material for privacy screens, but we have also used many other materials and even louvered hardware, so you have the choice to close the screen right down or open it up.

PRO LANDSCAPER TIP

Not all lattice is created equal. Thicker lath secured at the joints makes a big difference as does sturdy framing.

Horizontal Privacy Screens

While lattice is still a classic look, the horizontal panel infill is becoming more popular. It suits traditional garden spaces, but fits in especially well with contemporary homes. Spacing and style of infill can vary, each screen we build is unique.

Composite Privacy Screens

With new advancements in materials and the rising cost of lumber we are doing more composite screens. These usually combine powder coated aluminum framing and composite infill for both longevity and low maintenance. Matching fences and gates can be made from the same materials.

Traditional Lattice Privacy Screens

Lattice is a classic landscape design element for privacy screens. We use a heavier lath (the wood slats) in either a diagonal or square pattern depending on the project. This is a durable timeless way of providing privacy but allowing air and some light to flow through

Aluminum & Glass Privacy Screens

A different look with your privacy screens can come from using frosted glass as inserts in your aluminum framed low maintenance privacy screens.
