Repeat, Condo on 3rd floor, N. Facing patio needs privacy
I own the condo. HOA does not want shades or lattice since my patio faces the street. Plants seem to be okay. I live alone and want 1. privacy. 2 to not view apartments across street. The ficus are beautiful. I am petite and dragging the big trees to my bathroom to water thoroughly is too much for my back. (I had back surgery) I even used a dolly. Too much for me.
Can anyone think of something pretty? I love the trees, but need to make this 5x8 patio look appealing, at least to me. Fake trees? Gotta be something cool.
The cement is stained. I had a outdoor carpet on it, but pulled it up. Looks like I need to put a KilZ? or sealer on it. I will put a pull up flooring. Like synthetic large "tile or planks" that are used in showers. Nothing permanent.
I just I want a simple and pretty view from my front-room looking at my patio. Sorry this is a repeat. I had to take pic and did not know how to update my initial question. Thanks for any input.
I do not get a lot of sun, so that is why I am limited to low sun plants.
Patio floor is 5x8. I had a small table for my older grandkids to sit out and eat lunch, but I am trying to minimize the look for my small patio.
