    We need privacy too so we are covering an 8' wide x 6' tall space using plumbing pipe and a white shower curtain. Ours will be attached to the top of the flat railing on our porch.


    You can set yours in concrete in the ground.


    2 - uprights (cut to 6' to 7' for desired height (big box store will cut and rethread0

    1 - cross bar (comes in 10' sections)

    2 - 90 degree fittings

    2 to 3 - bags of sakrete!

    1 - shower curtain

    1 - set shower curtain hooks


    Take outside, use it and take it in when you go inside!

    Interconnect PVCs or copper pipes into upside down U's, that set as posts into concrete. Bamboo Blinds attach to Pipe Too, and these make a constructive 'neighborly alternative' to fences.

    Pros: you can adjust privacy levels, paint them any color you want, clean those and bring the blinds indoors in the winter.

    Cons: You need lace exterior drawstrings through the blinds [with an exterior painted or weatherproofed twine] or the ropes will dry rot in two years or less. You got bare pipes in the winters, Until Ivy or climbing roses take enough to wrap around them, [unless you do grow grapes, atwhich you got birds eating grapes, also targetting your flagstone with droppings].
