Outdoor Privacy Screen Ideas For Decks


What is a Privacy Screen?

A privacy screen is a structure that will provide a visual barrier or screen between an outdoor area or a habitable room window on a lot and the adjoining lot. It does not have an individual opening that is over 30 millimetres wide and the total area of openings can not exceed 30% surface area of the barrier or screen. It could also be a window, entirely made from translucent glass and not able to be opened.

Privacy Screens can be installed for many reasons, but the most common reasons are:

  • give the homeowner privacy from neighbours or people on the street, or
  • to hide unsightly views from the homeowner
