This is my second post - with a picture ( had trouble loading pic before)
The yard is on the side of my house and off our kitchen. I would love to be able to get some privacy ideas to hide the large 2 story house behind us and have a nice seating area & fire pit . Thanks for all and any ideas . By the way the overgrown jasmine on the fence has been removed.

Have you been living there long? Because I see a tree and when that has leaves, your problem may be solved?

Cautious with fire pit - check into local fire code.

Yay! Sorry it was difficult to get the photos to attach and appear.

What part of the country are you located? That will help with plant suggestions.
Privacy evergreens would be great in the back. You'd just have to make sure to balance the need for fast-growing with the proximity to fencing and any other things like wires. http://www.houzz.com/privacy-shrubs-evergreen-trees

How do you use the side yard most often?
What style do you prefer? Traditional? Modern?

If you had better privacy in the back, would you use a patio out there more?
