Flower Mound Real Estate: Make Your Outdoor Spaces More Private

Many people look forward to sitting outdoors on a deck or patio at the end of a long or stressful work day; unfortunately, if you don’t have a private area you may feel like the neighbors are watching as you enjoy a cocktail or just relax and read the newspaper. Our Flower Mound realtors have a few ideas that will help transform your backyard into a private, relaxing retreat.

Here are a few ideas:

Build a stone wall or wooden fence, or use screens in combination with either. A short stone wall combined with greenery or screens can give you a sense of privacy, without making you feel like you’re in prison. Or, consider a wooden fence consisting of boards alternating with lattice for a more open, airy feeling.

Consider evergreens, a “natural” privacy screen. Laurel, boxwood, and junipers are some popular hedges you may want to consider using to create a barrier – and they’re beautiful, particularly if planted in a zig-zag pattern rather than a straight line.

Create a cozy space with lattice, stained glass partitions, wrought iron or louvered wood panels. Lattice covered with vines adds a cozy and romantic feel to the space; or, consider screens or stained glass partitions which can be anchored into the ground. You may also want to consider fabric panels, or even a vine-covered pergola style roof.

If your problem isn’t really lack of privacy, but too much noise in the neighborhood, consider a fountain. The “gurgling” sound of water is not only relaxing, it can help “drown out” unwanted noise.

When you buy a beautiful, upscale home in Frisco, Flower Mound, or Denton, you expect a home you can enjoy on the inside – and on the outside. Hopefully our suggestions will help spark an idea to help you make your outdoor spaces peaceful, private, and totally relaxing!

    Ray was fantastic. He cares about you and the sell of your house. He gave us pointers to make our house show good for potential buyers. He is a good listener and readily available. The video that was done was of excellent quality. Kelley knocked everything out of the park. She kept us level headed when issues arose. She negotiate with the buyers agent a great deal where we could remain in our home until the new one was complete. She did an awesome job. I would recommend the Nelson team to anyone looking to sell their home.We had a great experience.Iris and Carvin Hendricks
