What Are Some Ways to Create Outdoor Privacy Screens?

Create an inexpensive yet effective privacy screen by using lattice panels, bamboo fencing or climbing plants. Each one of these solutions is easy to install and looks great.

When putting up a privacy screen, make sure to put it in a place where it does the most good. Sit down in an area and check the lines of sight before deciding on an area for a privacy screen.

Outdoor fabric is an inexpensive material used for building privacy screens. Build a frame and mount the fabric to the screen. The average cost of outdoor fabric is from $12 to more than $120 per yard, as of October 2015. Outdoor fabric holds up well against the elements.

Another idea is to use lattice panels to create privacy for almost any outdoor space. Prices range from around $15 to more than $30 for a panel that is four feet by eight feet, and the panels come in wood or plastic.

Plant lovers will enjoy a living privacy screen made from a wooden trellis and climbing plants and vines. Erect a trellis and begin with some climbing vines in tall containers. This privacy screen is a little more costly.

Bamboo fencing is another option for a privacy screen. It sells for around $20 to $25 per roll and each roll covers an area of six feet by 16 feet.
