Having a pool in your backyard can be a fun way to relax, exercise, or entertain your friends. However, when your neighbors are closer than you would like them to be, creating privacy around your backyard pool area is a must. Here are some simple ways in which you can create privacy around your pool area without doing a full backyard remodel.
Planting Shrubs – There are plenty of shrubs available to plant around your pool that will help to create privacy but not create a massive mess by leaves falling into the water. In two of our previous blog posts, we have talked about plants you do not want near your pool and shrubs that create privacy, but some plants are both of those things! Hedge shrubs and foundation shrubs are known for not causing a mess while still creating a shield of solitude.
Adding a fence – While it requires a little bit of construction, adding a privacy fence around your pool is often a great option if your neighbors’ living spaces are very close to your pool. A fence is a sure-fire way of making sure your pool is guarded from your neighbor’s view.
Incorporating a pool enclosure – Not only is adding a pool enclosure to your backyard a great idea so you can enjoy your pool in any weather, but it is also an excellent addition for privacy purposes as well. An enclosure can give you the coverage you need from varying North Florida temperatures and weather, but also keep your pool area secluded from the houses surrounding your backyard.
