Privacy Screens

Privacy screens are an amazing solution for so many of us. Whether you want to hide an area of your space that is messy or cover up a fence or even a view of a neighbour, these screens are perfect and even add to your outdoor décor. Select a finish that requires zero maintenance and material like aluminum for a lightweight option.

Plants can also help with privacy as well. White Bird of Paradise is great for larger spaces with lots of sun. The Chamaedorea cataractarium is perfect for medium spaces that have morning sun and afternoon shade. And the Kimberly Fern is the ultimate small space plant that thrives in shade.
