5 OUTDOOR PRIVACY SCREEN IDEAS

Looking for inspiration for your outdoor privacy screen? Here are five ways to create more privacy in your outdoor space, either with a standalone privacy screen or a fence screen from LOVE STORY.

1. Close In an Above-Ground Pool

Want a quick way to make your above-ground pool private without having to build a fence? Simply take a privacy fence screen and wrap it around posts attached to your pool. You'll want a screen that's durable and waterproof so it won't be damaged when you splash around in the pool. 

2. Finish a Basketball Court or Driveway

To create more privacy for your basketball court - and to keep the ball from flying into your neighbor's yard - add a tall privacy fence and screen. This type of privacy structure is best for recreational areas because it's durable. A wood lattice frame or a garden wall wouldn't be good for a basketball court - functionally or aesthetically.

3. Cover up a Slatted Fence with a Fence Privacy Screen

If you already have a slatted or wrought-iron fence, you can add charm and privacy to your outdoor space by adding a privacy fence screen to it. Turn a drab garden or patio into a relaxing oasis by placing colorful potted flowers and planters.

4. Make a Natural Privacy Screen

If you want to keep your outdoor area as natural as possible, why not install a plant wall as a privacy screen? Hang small potted plants on a lattice frame, or cover a trellis in ivy, then position it at the edge of your patio or terrace. 

5. Hang Outdoor Curtains

Curtains are an elegant way to keep your deck or patio private. They're also versatile - keep them open when you want to see the rest of your garden, or close them when you're gathered on the deck with friends and want some privacy. Outdoor curtains are also easy to install, but they work best for spaces that have a roof (covered decks, patios, etc.).

This worked out perfectly. We needed it to keep out wild animals and to keep my one dog from getting out. Helped with barking too… Excellent quality.

This screen is clean and sturdy looking. It helps me maintain a neat tidy yard while providing privacy in my yard. My neighbor liked it so much he had me buy him and his neighbor a few. Its uniform looking now we love it.

This has been a wonderful privacy screen to block my dogs from neighboring dogs. They can see shadows, but it has made it much more peaceful. It was easy to put up. It has lasted a year, with no signs of wear.

Super fast shipping. Arrived a week earlier than expected. Easy to install. Plenty of zip ties. We have tons of leaves and hoping this will block them from coming into the fenced yard and pool in crazy wind storms.

Shipped and arrived very quickly. Was extremely easy to install. It has only been up for a week or two so I can’t really speak on it’s durability long term, but initially we are pleased with it. It has eliminated a TON of barking coming from the neighbor’s dog next door which was my main reason for purchasing it, so I am happy.

I’m really happy with this product. It’s not completely private but it’s good enough for us. Our neighbors are always in their backyard when we are so this helps give us both privacy when needed.

New purchase so no durability data as of yet, however this product is better than others that I have used to both set up windbreaks at a tree farm as well as privacy.

This is great for the fence in my yard that is shared with a neighbor. Once this was up I could barely see to the other side. It is easily assembled with zip ties! Great value for much needed privacy!!

Just what I needed. We live off a busy road and I don’t like that people can see it and see the kids. Solved my problem without having to build a spendy fence

Absolutely love this and should have bought it a long tome ago! We live next to a business and now it’s a new company and busier than before. This will keep our dogs from barking at them and give us a little privacy. I plan on buying another one to do the back section of the fence.

Perfect for wrapping around our fence for privacy and allows mowing right up against fence, dogs can look out, but blocks the view inside.

I’m happy with this purchase. We bought this to put around our new pool so my puppy didn’t put a hole in the pool. It has been working great and looks really good.

This fence covering blocks prying eyes perfectly and the custom size I ordered fits great! I will update in a year to comment on durability.

This privacy screen was exactly what we were looking for to resolve fence aggression between our dog and the neighbors dogs. We recently installed a fence in our back yard and conjoined fencing on one side with neighbors who have 4 dogs. Whenever all the dogs were outside at the same time, the dogs would all run to the fence barking and sometimes pulling at the fence. Once we installed this privacy screen, the dogs could no longer see each other and were much easier to redirect. We chose black because our fencing and mulch is black and it makes a lovely backdrop for landscaping. We are extremely happy with our purchase.

Got this to hang on our fence and stop the neighbors dog from constantly barking while we are outside. It does the job intended, it is still see through to us but I guess is distracting enough to shut the dogs up. Overall, we are getting more to finish out each side of the yards fence.

Very easy to install. Worked in keeping the dogs from barking quite so much from seeing the next door neighbor dogs.

I ordered the black version and I am very pleased with it. Now the next door neighbor’s dog doesn’t freak out as much when I’m in my own backyard.

Very durable, very easy to install! I feel a little more at ease about allowing my children play outside when the gate isn’t see through and am extremely excited about all of the trash from my neighborhood that will no longer end up in my backyard because it slips through the gate bars.

This is an amazing product! So much cheaper than privacy slats and to me, looks the same! My dogs cant see out, and my neighbors are happy to not hear my dogs anymore. Thank you! Will definitely be reordering for the rest of my fence!

We got this cover to have our dogs not pay attention to our neighbor’s pit bull. We put our fence 6 feet from the property line. But once the pit saw our pups he was trying to dig out of his fence that scared our pups. So we got this to blind both sets of dogs from seeing each other. Our dogs finally go all around the fenced-in area. This product is sturdy, well made. It is everything and more on the description.

We used this to cover our chainlink fence for privacy on the backside and leftside of our yard. It serves our needs for privacy perfectly – we cannot see anyone walking by our fence now – and they cannot see us chilling in our backyard. Have had some inclement weather since installation and, yes, the wind blows it a bit but it has held up strongly.

Exactly what I needed! I needed something not too expensive and I needed it now. I have a 4 ft. chain link fence so no one wanders into the canal behind my house but because my back yard lines up with the end of the street across the water, everyone stops and stares constantly. I mean CONSTANTLY. It doesn’t matter that it’s my backyard or that my young daughters are swinging and playing there, they sit in their cars and stare at us and through to the other side. I ordered more but haven’t needed them yet. My husband put it up in no time. So far it’s been AMAZING! You can see just a little through it not enough to make a difference, it’s sturdy and we just had a tropical storm with wind gusts up to 70 mph and the fence bowed only a tiny bit, would’ve anyway, and all the cable ties held and no fraying or any issues. I’ve had it up for about a month and now people are driving on by instead of staring. Definitely worth it! Totally worth the money and if you want to take it down just clip the ties.

This is a nice quick way to add a little privacy. We bought this to keep our dogs from seeing and barking at the neighbors. Since one can still see a little through the screen, it did not totally eliminate the barking but reduced it. We were fortunate in that the length, or end, of the screen lined up with a post.
