Evergreen Privacy Screens made from beautiful plants are visually appealing and provide a view proof screen and almost sound proof barrier. ( Sometimes this landscaping is called a sound buffer )
We want to plant your evergreen privacy screen in the Middle Tn Nashville area. In the photo to the left you see Arborvitae in a Privacy Barrier. Some other Evergreens for Privacy used in Tennessee are Large Junipers, White Pine, and Large Hollies.
Garden design to make your home more secure
When you arrive home after a hard day, exhausted and in need of a respite from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, privacy and security take on a whole new meaning. In today’s world, there is very little time or space for that much-needed downtime, so it falls upon the individual to create it at home – often in your own backyard.

No one wants their neighbors sneaking a peek at what they’re having for dinner on the patio or watching over them as they host a cocktail party. The reality of it is, in most urban spaces, many houses these days are built a lot closer together than ever before, and as a result, physical privacy is scarce – even at home. The backyard and garden area of most lots are even left wide open after the house is built, with very little or no landscape architecture having been considered for those moving in. These are wide-open backyards so it is up to the homeowner to create a garden for a personal retreat whilst providing privacy and security at the same time.
Planning that private hideaway
When it comes to planning a private, secure garden, it is important to begin by assessing the space and deciding on lifestyle needs. What sort of barriers are preferred – evergreen hedges, perhaps, or a fence? Families often need more in the garden area than just a place to sit and the kids to play, so think about all aspects of outdoors living and entertaining.

There are a number of different elements to creating privacy in the backyard, all of which can be personalized to meet need and the available budget. Fencing is usually the least expensive security and privacy solution, and it also happens to be the most common. There is a wide range of fencing materials out there, ranging from metal and vinyl to more ornate and natural materials such as cedar, teak, and tropical woods.

If you want to avoid feeling enclosed or locked in with a fence, but want plenty of privacy and an element of security, use lattices, structures, and even natural vegetation to achieve the goal. These are an excellent solution to creating privacy, but also can easily add a hint of architectural beauty and an extra dimension to the space. The clever placement of mixed natural textures can actually create the feeling of an outdoor room in the backyard, perfect for entertaining and that feeling of escaping it all.

Adding extra security
Exterior landscaping is a large part of any homeowner’s desire to make a house a home, but security should be seriously considered when doing it. Aside from having home security systems that protect the interior of the home, there are a number of home security systems Nashville has to offer for those who want to add extra security to their garden areas as well.

By including certain elements in the garden design, it is easy to incorporate both privacy and security. Small inclusions, such as a decorative locking gate in a fence run, can add convenience whilst keeping out the uninvited. By using thorny plants for hedging and including plenty of external lighting, homeowners can deter thieves while keeping things looking attractive. Finally, it is important to remember that a house should not be hidden completely behind high hedges, walls or fences, as this allows a burglar to force an entry to the property without having to worry about being observed by neighbors. So let your evergreen privacy screen enhance security.
