    Hi Tracy, you could put some posts in the ground and screw lattice to them. Would that work for your yard?

    Or if you could hang a shower curtain, you could put a colorful sheet there to give some privacy.

    Inexpensive bamboo fencing from the garden center and some metal fence posts you can pound into the ground would do the trick. It comes on rolls in various heights and sizes of bamboo.

    Hi Tracy: Ask your landlord if he will put up a fence. A no is better than a missed yes:) And, I'd check with them before doing anything. Most alterations are the tenant's responsibility to pay for and become property of the landlord when the tenant leaves. So, take that into consideration. Good luck

    The home improvement stores sell fence panels that are 6 or 8 foot sections. They only require the support posts to hold them in place and you can do as few or as little as necessary. We have a gap on our rental land that needs some privacy and one panel does the trick. If the landlord prefers, they are easy to remove when you move.
