Outdoor plantings will largely depend on where you live and it's climatic conditions. Other factors will include: how much maintenance do you want to do - tall grasses require very little upkeep, but don't flower like an hydrangea shrub.

I would also determine the aesthetic you want - flowering, green bushes, or grasses. All can provide privacy. I would also look at a few of the idea books below, to see if they can give you inspiration for the look you want. Then I would visit your local gardening center and ask their opinion on getting the look you want for your area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Inspirations: Landscape Photography
Wild New England pink roses are given the credit they deserve.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Hillside Solutions...Landscaping on the Slant
Make the entrance to your landscaped path or hillside stairs feel extra special with a rose-covered arbor.
Becky Harris added this to Cottage Bliss
I don't know what it is, but I know it when I see it. It doesn't get more "cottage" than this.
Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Mass plantings to highlight specimen plants. Usually you admire roses in a floral arrangement or as a specimen bush. Although some may argue that an entire bank planted with the same species of rose contradicts the unique and rare qualities that are associated with a single bush or stem, I think this flourish of roses only escalates the grandeur and beauty of the rose. In this case, too much of a good thing is a great thing.
Amy Renea added this to Roses: Crowning Touch of Gardens
For a cottage garden, closely spaced shrub roses might be the answer. A hedge full of luscious blooms is a sight to behold in summer!
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Reimagine the Rose Garden
The look of a country cottage is undeniably charming. The accompanying English gardens often use roses in groupings that are far less organized and staid that what we think of as a traditional rose garden.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to Pacific Northwest Gardener: What to Do in June
Stay on top of rose pests and disease. If you notice a black spot, pick off affected leaves right away so it doesn't spread. Aphids can be managed in their early stages with organic insecticidal soap or a quick blast of water, while caterpillars, if noticed quickly, can be picked off and relocated to a wild area of the garden. Remember, caterpillars do become moths and butterflies, which are valuable pollinators for our vegetable gardens.If you want to avoid any pest problems yet still enjoy roses in your garden, modern landscape roses (as seen above) such as Knockout, Drift, Oso Easy and Flower Carpet roses create a long-lasting flower display in the garden, yet need little care and fussing to do well. They're even well suited to a totally no-spray garden.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
A neatly contained rose garden would not be out of place in this landscape style. It would offer color outside as well as flowers for your home's interior. If you're looking for a modern, fragrant update on a traditional rose, consider the David Austin varieties.
