How to make a frugal yard divider?

Pam MillerTheHoneycombHomeCynthia H


I have a large expanse between a pole/tree and another tree. The house on the other side had a fire and is unsightly so I would like to block the view somehow with a frugal divider. Thanks!

    Hi Pam. We have arborvitae's planted around the perimeter of our backyard. I love them because they give us privacy and they look great. They grow slim and very tall. They look like a wall of greenery. The former owners planted them and I am so glad they did. That's my recommendation for you. Check them out and see if you like them as much as I do. Good luck Pam.

    A section of privacy fence is reasonably priced at the lumber yard. If you want to make it yourself, you could build it with pallets.

    Use a trellis with climbing vines!

    Thanks! I really like that idea as it is more natural than adding fence and hopefully will grow faster than trees!
