Please help!! My neighbor just built a deck which overlooks my pool.

Any suggestions on how I can give privacy to my pool so that we don't feel like we are on display. There deck is higher than our pool area. Thanks in Advance

    You could put a gazebo over your pool ... if it's not too big, or pergola with a removable cover, outdoor drapery ... or anything that would give you air, light and privacy that can be opened and closed and easily removed for winter storage...just a few ideas. Good Luck! (we overlook neighbor's disgracefully trashed yard, so we have privacy covers on our deck to block the view but still have light and air - very inexpensive but covers a large area)

    Here is a post of a collection of ideas: I also have a board called 'Paths, walls and pergolas' - have a look and see if there is anything else that could work for you.

    Bummer! Unfortunately when we live close, we lose privacy... (and just think, all those city planners want us to have less land and live/work/play in the same area...not for me!) It seems a Pergola might be your cheapest answer. Build one where you can put in a swing, etc. Grommets in drop clothes is your cheapest drape screening!

    What about planting some kind of tall trees to block their view? We have done that in our own yard as we like our privacy when using our pool or spa. Our trees have grown over the years and completely block either of our neighbors from looking into our yard.
