Could you post a picture of the area so we can see what you see and offer the best, workable solutions?
Carol: here are some ideas:
Install trellis(s) and plant a vines to grow up the trellis to block the view, or you can purchase rolls of bamboo fencing and install, if that's allowed in your area.
You could plant some fast growing tall pines as a natural screen
Push Bamboo poles into the ground and wind fabric in and out to form screen. Erect a Fence or Trellis or Screen or plant a large planter up with tall plants. Build a plant wall using blocks. Buy a Beach Windbreak maybe? Best wishes.
Consider plants in pots, even a hedge, real or artificial. You could also make a screen of lattice pieces.
There are oodles of ways to do this and I’ve seen some fantastic ideas on Hometalk. Did you try the search bar at the top left?
Do you want to create more privacy on your patio, balcony, porch, etc.?
Please post a picture so we can see what sort of space you have to work with.
Do you have a fence?
