Ideas For Privacy Screening?
Hi there everyone, I have some privacy screening questions. When I step out of my side door into the garden, my neighbours house is only about 9 metres away on my left side. The side door of their house points towards my garden. Although it is already partially obscured by a fence, the problem is the fence looks similar to the picture below (it's an example only pulled from Google) and the top part of the fence is eye-level so they can still look right into the garden.
They are nice enough people, it's just that they use their small garden very frequently everyday. This means that whenever I go out for a smoke, one of them is almost always outside, often looking directly into my garden and at me, which is starting to feel a bit intrusive.
What I'd like to do is either get some sort of vine to grow over the top part of the fence, to obscure the view more effectively, or to strategically angle some sort of dividing screen or garden parasol outside my side door so that when I step out, some large objects blocks their view.
Any ideas would be appreciated (please bear in mind I'm on a very low budget).
