Although you don’t want to feel hemmed in while enjoying time in your backyard, when you are relaxing or entertaining, a level of privacy is still very desirable. Often the proximity of a neighbor’s backyard or outdoor living space is just right to provide a clear view into your backyard. Unfortunately, if this is the case for you and your neighbors, your tranquil place to dine, read a book, or just unwind after a long day can quickly feel too crowded.
If you are considering an improvement to an existing space or the addition of a new outdoor structure that preserves your privacy but also retains the openness of being outdoors, Archadeck of Central South Carolina is this area’s leading custom designer and builder of outdoor living spaces. We can create a space for you that’s the perfect balance of both open and private, as is evident in many of the custom designs we’ve provided for other South Carolina homeowners.

We work closely with our clients to design the outdoor living space that best suits their needs while fulfilling their wants as well. When working through the preliminary design stage, it’s also important to consider the correlation between your backyard and that of your neighbors, how the proximity will affect the way you use your new space, and the views looking in and out. An outdoor space addition can bring a change in elevation from the grade of the property. Your view of the surrounding perimeter, and potentially your neighbors’, will change, enabling visibility from several angles where there was none previously.
One of our most successful projects demonstrating the balance of openness and privacy within the same design was built for homeowners in Columbia, SC. A couple of years ago we completed a composite deck for them, and although they loved their new deck, after several opportunities to use it, they soon realized they needed a way to separate their view from that of the neighbors. By using innovative framed panels of vertical lattice suspended from a detailed pergola frame, we created a custom privacy fence design for the deck that solved the problem. The finished project not only provided privacy from prying eyes, but it also became a stunning design element and created a focal point.

Screen porches naturally provide privacy while enhancing the aesthetics of your functional spaces tremendously. If a screened porch is the type of structure you prefer, you may find that a traditional screen doesn’t create enough privacy for you. We can install a screening material that restricts the visibility from the outside but still allows ventilation with an unobstructed view of your surrounding property from within the structure. Additionally, a pergola also makes a perfect companion for a spa or poolside and offers a certain degree of privacy by keeping prying eyes from looking directly into your pool or spa space.
Archadeck of Central South Carolina has been helping homeowners find the right privacy solutions for their outdoor living spaces for many years. How you will use your space, and your privacy needs, are something we discuss and build into your design when planning your outdoor space. Keep in mind all yards are different and certain privacy solutions will work well with certain yards, decks, porches, and existing features while others will not. We are experts at designing privacy solutions that will not draw attention but blend with the structure or area where they are located.
