Unlike the wide open Midwest, where’s it not unusual for families to have an acre or more of land surrounding their home, space is at a premium in San Diego. Backyard privacy can be difficult to obtain in San Diego with neighbors on both sides or even in back separated by only a small amount of land. However, there are plenty of tips and tricks that homeowners in San Diego can use to turn their small backyard into a peaceful and private oasis.
Add a Solid Patio Cover
If you already have a patio, add a solid patio cover. Not only does it provide plenty of shade, but you can also hang outdoor curtains or fabric to create a private enclave. You’ll get plenty of fresh air without the glare of the sun or the outside world.
