Need suggestion to hide a terrible backyard view
October 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just purchased a home, and the backyard is a decent size. As ugly as the play structure is, it is perfect for my 2 year old son, so I think we'll be keeping it, but relocating it to a different part of the yard. My problem is, we have this horrendous building behind us. I was thinking of a few options for hiding it, but I wondered if anyone else had suggestions. My first thought was to build up a tiered garden along the fence and plant tall bushes/moderate height trees on the top tier. Second thought was to do some sort of lattice work or pergola along the fence line. Any other suggestions? I attached a picture. I don't have a better one because I live 1,500 miles away from the house at the moment. These were taken by the realtor...
