9 Best Plants for a More Private Backyard
When chosen strategically, the right plants will not only add beauty to your backyard, but also some much-appreciated privacy. If filling out the landscaping around your house to boost curb appeal in the front and increase privacy in the back has been on your home to-do list for a while now, you'll want to take a tour of our 2022 Get It Done virtual home. This 3D house is full of inspiration for completing those "someday" tasks—and it will convince you to make this the year that you finally invest in landscaping you love.
To check backyard privacy off your to-do list, we reached out to plant pros at Monrovia and Costa Farms to figure out which plant varieties are best for this purpose. From false cypress trees that will form a natural screen around your yard, to a climbing vine that will weave its way up trellises, there's an option here to match every style. Check that the plant will survive in your planting zone, then have some patience as it grows. The wait will be worth it when these plants provide privacy from your neighbors and turn your outdoor space into your own personal oasis.
