I have a cyclone fence. Ordinances prohibit me from putting up another one. Would appreciate any ideas to get some privacy back in my own yard

    Lady Bird Johnson's beautification program required auto salvage yards to hide the salvage. Most had hurricane fences. They hid the salvage by putting slats similar to venetian blind slats weaved thru the fences. I don't know where to find them except online.

      Amazon sells the "slats". I have also used reed fencing attached to the chain link fence with zip ties. I am assuming hurricane fence and chain link are similar. In central Texas heat the reed fencing has to be replaced annually, so I did purchase the slats.

    Plant box hedges about 1' apart and in about 6 mos. you should have a privacy hedge as tall as your fence. If you shape them they will grow evenly if not they will grow very tall and wild.

    Big box stores sell privacy slats to insert in your existing fence.

    For a long time I had no neighbors and now I do, so I am thinking about plant bamboo in containers to give me some pool privacy

    Weave reeds and flowers through the slats of the fence, or go to Lowes..

    DO NOT plant bamboo - it's a great screen but only plant it in something you can contain, like a skinny metal planter. It will encroach fast & destroy your yard and you will NEVER get it all out. Look up privacy screen online and look for the fabric you see at tennis courts. I bought 50' for $40 and its very sturdy and has great grommets to hang on fence with cable ties. You can anchor bottom with landscape pins. You can also use rolled bamboo fencing that you can attach w/ cable ties too. Sold at Lowes & Home Depot. It will rot pretty quickly though, depending on where you live.

    I planted a hedge of Rose of Sharon. A friend gave it to me years ago from her hedge, Can be pruned if needed. ( I have 2-3 times) Self sows to fill in gaps(unless sterile) If you live close to me, I can give you about a dozen starts. It's in my flower beds, grass, vege garden. It's blooming now and very pretty

    I agree with the Rose of Sharon idea. We have them at our lake house and they do provide the needed privacy. No real upkeep either.
