How to cover open lattice for privacy?
I need to figure out a way to cover the lattice by my carport for additional privacy from my crazy neighbors. It has been a nightmare living next to them since they moved in several years ago. I put curtains up in the carport, but they have seen better days and I need to replace them. I want to fasten something to the lattice instead. I thought about plants, but that would take too long. Any suggestions?

Buy rolls of webbing , the kind used for patio chairs and weave it in and out the lattice. English Ivy is fast growing. Plant Chinese privet plants they are a good and fast growing screen.
First I'd plant something that will return year after year and vine as a long-term solution...in the short term, have you considered drop cloth curtains? Cost-effective! https://www.hometalk.com/diy/outdoor/patios/curtains-outdoor-drop-cloth-diy-4115271

Dye some canvas painters cloths or leave them natural. You could cover the all the lattice or even cut them in strips and weave then into the holes in the lattice.
I like the idea of weaving something through the lattice. As long as it lasts a long time.
Any fabric you use will degrade if it is not specifically made for outdoor use. One such fabric is awning canvass. I would go to a garden center and inquire about fast growing ivy that does not drop its leaves in winter. Plant lots of that and your problem will go away in one season and stay gone permanently. In addition, because its a planting, the ivy actually increases the value of your property, as it is considered landscaping.
