Townhouse living offers many benefits, but privacy is not often one of them.
Trellis and screens offer a decorative solution to privacy on a patio or deck while timber allows you to be creative and incorporate it into the garden design as mock walls to provide privacy.
Many townhouse gardens hardly have any privacy and many are overlooked by units on higher levels. So how do you create the illusion of privacy in your own garden?
In a sectional title scheme, the rules of the body corporate determine what you can and cannot do in your townhouse - and it pays to check – but you can add privacy without using brick and mortar.
Timber allows you to be creative in a number of ways and if you are not allowed to attach a timber structure to the building, you can incorporate it into the garden design as mock walls to provide privacy.
Mobile planters allow you to move them around to create a private corner, and you don't need to spend a fortune on planter boxes if you make your own using shutterply. Shutterply is the commercial version of pine plywood and has a rustic finish that can be stained and sealed. You can also choose to use marine plywood which is much more expensive but has a beautiful finish.
Ornamental bamboo grows high without spreading and creates a dappled boundary that is perfect for planter boxes and for adding privacy to a small garden.
Trellis and screens offer a decorative solution to privacy on a patio or deck. If you don't want to go to the bother of making your own screens, your local Builders Warehouse offers a variety of affordable options to choose from.
