The following five projects provide some examples of privacy being created under various circumstances. Look for challenges you can relate to in your backyard and take note of the possible solutions.
Project 1: A small space, with privacy issues
This new home was constructed in a small clearing on the edge of an escarpment with some majestic views. However, the only location for a pool was between the parking area and the front door.
A combination of mature evergreens and a well-placed pool cabana were not only appropriate for this setting but also succeeded in creating the necessary visual buffers from the "public" areas of the home and the "by invitation only" entertaining spot for the family. Although these two very differing zones are only meters apart, they both feel completely separate from each other.
