A pergola transformed this patio into an intimate outdoor dining and kitchen area. For more privacy, Arch Interiors added height to the yard’s perimeter walls with wooden lattice perfect for climbing vines.
This outdoor courtyard area features foliage and vining plants to take advantage of the vertical space. Artistic panels hang in front of a combination of brown metal fencing and red brick wall to offer privacy and vertical interest.
Every retreat needs some sort of screen or walls to provide a sense of privacy. If space is at a premium (think deck or balcony retreat), try a living wall planter or vines on a trellis to screen a space without gobbling real estate. A fence, lattice or hedge provides year-round privacy, while plantings may only shelter your retreat during the height of the growing season. This hideaway bench boasts industrial style that’s tucked behind a living screen of joe pye weed (Eutrochium) and tall maiden grass (Miscanthus sinensis).
