With a bit of thought, not only can you make your garden more private, privacy screens can become a feature of your garden. Whether you have a modern theme or country look, there’s now a wide range of materials and colour options to harmonise or contrast with how your front garden or backyard currently looks. Many residents also use custom screens instead of traditional fencing to provide a more attractive boundary.
Aluminium Slat Privacy Screens
For a modern look, aluminium slat screens can’t be beaten. Lightweight and rust resistant, they can be custom designed to suit any application and powder coated to any colour you like from Dulux’s powder coat range.
Composite Timber Slat Screens
More durable than timber, composite timber slat screens Adelaide home owners can select are made from a combination of recycled plastic and hardwood. Able to span greater distances without warping, composite screens are virtually maintenance free as they don’t require oiling and won’t rot!
Available in a handful of popular colours, composite screens can look like natural hardwood, or painted wood, without the need for re-painting.
Hardwood Timber Screens
Purists who love the look and feel of real wood choose hardwood timber slat screens. Popular as a background to feature garden elements, hardwood timber slats are also used as privacy screens to swimming pools. Although they do require oiling to keep them looking new every few years, depending on the location, hardwood timber slat screens look great as a large wall and doors can be easily included, giving access into other areas of your garden.
Laser Cut Screens
The latest trend in privacy screens comes care of laser cut decorative screens. With a myriad of patterns and colours to choose from, laser cut screens Adelaide residents can have custom made and installed are extremely popular as a feature wall or fence.
Privacy Screen Tips:
A screen is one of the simplest, yet effective garden features Adelaide residents can have installed. Whether as a backdrop to a bird bath or statue, screens offer so much more than just privacy.
The easiest way to decide what type of privacy screen to have in your garden is to look at your garden’s theme. If it’s modern with plenty of grey, black and white, a natural hardwood timber slat screen would look out of place. If however, you have creams and earthy tones with plenty of trees and foliage throughout your garden, laser cut decorative screens or composite timber slat screens would not suit.
