Hi, we have a side yard and no back yard. The side yard is not fenced or enclosed. We came up with an idea to build this structure with lattice and rain gutters and we will be planting some flowers in the gutters. Do you think it looks good or what else we do with this structure for it to look better and create a more private area to hang out and BBQ?

i think that's a great idea.
i'd say you need a couple more lengths of guttering though.
maybe just 1, if you get some hanging plants.

does the structure enclose the area fully?
you could get some outdoor fabric and create a soft awning area that would shelter you and your guests from the sun at that point.
hmmm, though i see now that it might impede that window. hm.

Thanks yoboseiyo, appreciate your thoughts. Another person suggested shade sails to soften and provide cover. Thanks for the idea.

Check if you need a permit to attach sails to house, and don't leave up in extreme winds.
