Cheap chain link privacy solution. I have a 2in chain link mesh surrounding my backyard. Bought cedar lath from Home Depot 50 for 13.88. It weaves easily and perfectly. One bundle covers one section of fence that is 10ft wide and 6 ft tall. I love the modern look of the horizontal slats. Smells amazing in the rain.
Create a feature wall with vertical wall planters. It’s a great use of wall space and won’t crowd your seating area. Provide contrast by using timber against a plain wall and then mix and match the pots and plants you feature on it. Choose plants with leaves that hang down over the side of the pot to help fill the space
