    Hi ! I would take several planters and place them in the area you want privacy . Then get a trellis for each of them and plant a fast growing fine in each of them . I would talk to someone at a local garden shop to ask what would grow fast in your locations climate and the amount of Sun that it would get . Good luck !

    Any planter that you make (wood, concrete, etc.) needs to have drainage. A tall planter can have a false bottom to raise the dirt level up and you can use less dirt. Adding watering system into the planter hooked to a timer or irrigation system can keep the planter watered while you are away.

    If your planters are sufficiently large, you could plant bamboo in them, which is incredibly fast growing, but must be kept contained. There are on line videos for tartufa planters, if that's what you had in mind.

    We, mostly my husband, made some from lumber and underpinning. We found the design here on home talk. The design was for one but we joined them together to make a “wall” that goes around the pool area. It was a wooden box on bottom and the underpinning back for a trellis and a frame around that that connects each section. He even put solar lights atop each frame post for an added feature, though they don’t give off a tremendous amount of light, it is enough to see by.
