Creating A Private Backyard Oasis

Tips to Turn Your Southern California Backyard Into a Private Oasis
Your backyard should feel like your own private oasis. If you can see your neighbors, or are bothered by the noise of a road behind your house, your backyard can easily turn into one of your least enjoyable places in your home. Keep these tips in mind to help turn your backyard into your new favorite spot.

  • Plant tall privacy hedges around your backyard to maintain privacy and to help block out noise. Make sure to check to see if your neighborhood has any ordinances that limit the height of plants. If you do not like the look of a single privacy hedge, consider planting layered privacy plantings. Use a mix of different plants with different heights to create a more decorative wall.
  • Fences and walls can create a solid, visual buffer without having to wait for anything to grow. Fences and walls work best in side yards or smaller backyards since they will not take up as much space as a privacy hedge. There are also many different options to choose from when looking for the right material to ensure that you are able to build a wall that best matches the rest of your house.
  • If you have a small patio, installing a pergola will help to create an intimate feeling. The enclosure will also help to block out any bothersome noises, as well as anything you do not want to see, while still letting in plenty of fresh air and light.
