5 REASONS TO INSTALL A LANDSCAPE SCREEN IN YOUR YARD

If you have a backyard – or if you have only a balcony, consider installing a landscape screen. Here are five reasons to install a landscape screen in your yard. • Privacy. One of the number one reasons for installing a landscape screen is to create a feeling of privacy. If your yard is exposed, or if you just don’t like looking at the neighbouring yard while enjoying your morning coffee, a privacy screen is for you. • Protection from the elements. Whether it’s sun, rain – or even that white stuff – an outdoor screen can provide your yard protection from harsh elements. For example, if you want to create a shaded area for hot summer days, a full-height screen that lets only a little light filter through would be quite refreshing. • Create a separation of space. Perhaps you’d like to define a dining space in your yard. Install a screen – either full height or half, to partition off the area and create a cozy tucked-in feeling while you enjoy outdoor meals. • Add an eye-catching element. Outdoor screens aren’t just practical – they’re also pretty. Screens with details carved into them let light filter through and act as a work of art. • Grow a garden. If you don’t have space for an in-ground garden – or lack the time or skill to look after one, consider a screen that allows for a vertical garden. Not only will it look beautiful when it’s in bloom, but you can also use it to grow edibles like lettuce and herbs. Yum!
