Private Parts


Here in the United States, we have a right to privacy, and that right is even protected by the Constitution. Although there are many arguments about this, we’re not going to get in that deep. This is a landscaping website, not a political website. Don’t worry, you’ll be seeing enough of that soon anyway. (It’s almost election year.)

Unless you live in a rural area, you most likely have neighbors on each side of your house. While it’s good to be social and interact with you neighbors, it’s also nice to have some privacy, especially in your own back yard. There are many ways you can increase the privacy in your yard. You could build a fence or a wall, but those ideas are more on the expensive side. We have a different idea for providing privacy. Have you thought about screening with shrubs?
