Backdoor privacy issue addressed with specimen planting

Sometimes, residential privacy issues can't be resolved with a built solution due to planning constraints. However, this doesn't mean the problem has to go unresolved, it just means you have to be innovative in finding the right solution. 

The location of residential privacy issues can vary – sometimes its from a busy road, from boundary walls or even from a homeowner's door.

The team at Outlook Gardens recently helped a homeowner in Dublin who needed to shield the neighbouring view into their home at the back of the house, but did not want to tear down or alter the beautiful, old stone boundary wall between the two properties.
