An outdoor privacy screen is a great solution when you love spending time in your outdoor space, but the neighbors are a little too close for comfort. If you live in a condo or a neighborhood where building a fence isn’t a good option, create a privacy screen.

Whether you want to screen one end of your porch, a corner on your deck, or a nook in your garden, we’ve got 10 great-looking outdoor privacy screen ideas for decks, porches and backyards to inspire you.

A SECLUDED OASIS

You can’t relax in your backyard oasis if Bert and Karen’s deck is right there behind it. Vinyl lattice framed and attached to a pergola defines and hides the seating area. Tall bushes and plants act as living privacy screens. Let the relaxation begin!

A HIDDEN OUTDOOR ROOM

SEPARATION WITH A VIEW

For areas where you want physical separation but don’t want to block the view or breeze, tall framed lattice panels are a good solution. Lattice is available in a variety of patterns and colors. These lattice panels are vinyl and need little maintenance. If you want your view to feel unobstructed, choose a dark color.

A SIMPLE LATTICE SCREEN

Here, only a couple wood lattice panels are needed to create a shielded area. If you can’t find lattice in a pattern you like, try building your own lattice with lath. Here’s a hardwood composite panel with a similar design.

AN EXOTIC OBSCURING SCREEN

This exotic-looking privacy screen was built with decorative panels made of composite wood. They’re a stylish way to create privacy and obscure the not-so-attractive wall next door. Not to mention the cool shadows cast when the sun hits just right.

A PRIVATE OUTDOOR DINING AREA

A large deck is turned into a private outdoor dining room by installing wood lattice in an L shape. This low deck feels secluded (and Buddy the dog next door can't eagle-eye your burgers). Unlike a fence, support posts don’t need to be installed in the ground.

AN AIRY, SEMI-PRIVATE PORCH SCREEN

For porches with a roof or pergola, you can build a simple screen by hanging 2-foot-wide wood lattice panels. Paint the lattice to match your house or leave it natural. You’ll need to secure the panels on the bottom to keep them from swaying in the wind.

A PRIVATE OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING SPACE

These homeowners would rather not invite the neighbors’ garage doors to the party. A combination of privacy fencing and attractive wood walls built onto the deck let them entertain friends in peace.

A SECRET COURTYARD

Create a hidden courtyard with fencing. Two sides of this patio are shielded with privacy fence panels. Air and sunlight flow through lattice insets, and the gate welcomes friends. This vinyl privacy fence panel with lattice offers a similar look.

A PRIVATE GRILLING NOOK WITH A BEACHY VIBE

Unique semi-private panels form a fun corner nook for grilling and dining and create a beachy vibe. You can hardly see the building on the other side. The panel’s open pattern lets air in (and smoke out).
