Unfortunately, distance from your neighbors and the street are not all that it takes to give you a private living experience. If you are looking for smart ways to create a more private living experience, these are some excellent additions that you can consider for your property.
A smart starting point is to build a fence around the perimeter of your yard. The type of fence will depend on your property, any specific purpose for the fence you want, and your budget.
For example, if you simply want a barrier that makes the property line clear, just about any fence will do. If you want visual privacy on your property, you’ll likely want a tall wood or vinyl privacy fence with minimal gaps. If you’re trying to keep animals or people out, you’ll want something sturdier like a chain link fence or stone wall.
There’s no shortage of options that can suit your specific needs, so you’re your contractor exactly what you want. Remember to also consider how the fence will affect those inside it in regards to views, access, etc.
When your home is on a large piece of land, there is always a possibility that drivers will mistake a long, driveway for a road. They may travel right up to the front of your home before they realize their mistake. In some cases, kids will venture onto your lawn and use it as they would a public park.
You understandably want to protect your privacy by keeping strangers off of your land. Installing automatic or electric gates to your fence will enclose the entire perimeter barrier around your home. Automatic features make it easy for you to get in and out of the property as needed.
Mature vegetation can add beauty and even value to your home in some cases. More than that, it may block prying eyes from seeing your home. A smart idea is to plant tall bushes or trees along the inner perimeter of the fenced space. These may eventually grow taller than the fence. In addition, they can block your view of the fence so that you only see a lush yard that is outlined by mature vegetation. An alternative to tall trees and bushes is to use a trellis with climbing vines.
You can see that there are several excellent steps that you can take to boost your level of privacy at home. While you can use each of these ideas individually, you can see that you may enjoy enhanced privacy when you combine these three excellent ideas together. Now is a great time to assess your property’s primary privacy challenges so that you can move past your current issues and start enjoying the feeling of being completely relaxed at home.
