create a private getaway
What’s the secret to creating privacy in a small back yard? It starts with getting in shape. And this has nothing to do with early morning workouts (unless you mean edging and deadheading!).
One of the most effective ways to create privacy is with large, sweeping beds. It may seem counterintuitive, but notice how breaking up the space with lots of curving gardens actually makes this back yard seem larger. Click on the photo to see how effective this is.
Curving lines, as well as raised beds and tall plants, partially obscure the view of the rest of the garden. You can’t see the whole thing from any one vantage point. This creates mystery and piques people’s curiosity about what lies around the bend.
