Observing Eyes

Sure we all love our neighbors, but jeepers-peepers, not as an audience to our everyday-outdoor-lives. To mimic the seclusion we feel indoors – in our outdoor spaces . . . we create Backyard Privacy Screens. Being familiar with custom wood screens that look sharp in landscape design we may not realize there are other incognito Backyard Privacy Screens – that shield our neighbors observing eyes.

Micah Dennis and his landscape video crew take us on a ‘privateness journey’ where camouflaged screens are Stare-Stoppers. After the video, we’ll visit individual backyards for a more contemplative view of screening styles.

Living Wall Screens

Plant walls, vertical walls, living wall screens – you name ’em . . . these dynamo explosions of nature bring it all in while keeping eyes out.


As you can see, outdoor room walls are themselves a screen from neighbors’ attentiveness. Outdoor living spaces become our havens, exempt from under the microscope scrutiny. Are neighbors really that snoopy? Probably not, however, the comfort-ability factor of being undisturbed by others is priceless.
