Does Your Home Need More Privacy?

Does your home need more privacy? If you live in Arizona, you probably know this problem well. Not having enough privacy is a common problem in parts of Arizona where developers tend to maximize profit. Homes in Gilbert, Queen Creek & West Valley are built so close together, not leaving much to the imagination of prying eyes or curious neighbors.

People passing by can see you go about your daily routine through your windows. Having a nice afternoon in your backyard patio? Your neighbors can see you from the second floor of their homes. When you just want to relax and enjoy solitude, the last thing you want to see is your neighbors staring at you. How do you solve this privacy problem?


All Pro Shade Concepts installs custom window sun screens, awnings, and patio shades; and are the leading shade providers in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, the East Valley (Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Queen Creek) and West Valley (Phoenix, Glendale, Sun City, Laveen, Peoria, Avondale, Goodyear).

Build Fences or Walls


This seems to be the pretty obvious solution. But first, you have to pick the kind of fence that works for you. You can go for the usual wooden fence, or a stone wall topped with wooden fencing. Mixing it up a bit with interesting materials such as glass, ornate ironwork or different kinds of wood can get rid of the claustrophobic feeling you get from dull fences. Just make sure to follow your area’s Property Line & Fence laws.

 

 

Consider Lattices


One good way to gain privacy is to use lattices. Lattices can make your yard look more cozy and inviting. If your yard is looking a little grey, you can add some color by growing vines like Bougainvillea or Cat’s Claw unto your lattice. While lattices allow air flow and natural light into your yard, it also serves as a good visual barrier.

Get Sun Screens on Your Windows


If you need some privacy from your neighbors and shade from the glaring sun, shade solutions can hit two birds with one stone. It takes a bit of work to put up fences and lattices, and not everyone has the luxury of time. You can always ask a professional to install shade solutions for you. Sun screens are great all-year round visual barriers and it helps you cool your home. You can choose your custom screen materials- like fabric, where you can decide the amount of visibility you want from the outside.

 

 

Get Patio Shades or Awnings


Retractable awnings and patio roll shades are awesome options that will also let you enjoy your patio without worrying about being seen from your neighbor’s second floor window. You'll be amazed at how much more privacy you'll feel with these simple shade solutions. Just as the window screens, you can decide the amount of visibility you prefer with your custom patio shades, along with your choice of track style.

Do Some Landscaping


There are many ways to use plants and trees to gain more privacy, and there are a number of trees that can grow in the Arizona climate. Trees like the Desert Willow, Blue Palo Verde and Arizona Rosewood are perfect for landscaping. Hedges and other plants are also a great way to block your neighbors’ view. If your yard space is a little small, experiment with raised plant beds, huge planters and layered gardens and turn your yard into a quaint little getaway.

Get Your Arizona Home Ready for Nice Weather

It’s been a long, hot summer, but it’s finally time to get your Arizona backyard and patio ready for the cooler fall and winter months! Check out these home makeover tips just in time for your outdoor soirees.

Mood Lighting


Nothing sets the mood like outdoor lighting when you’re entertaining. While standard overhead lighting on your patio is practical, it can make your outdoor party seem drab and dull. String market lights or lanterns across your entire yard to light up the whole space and make your yard and patio more inviting. Uplighting on trees makes a dramatic impression, and walkway lighting is a practical and trendy way to draw attention to your entertainment space.

 

Patio Shades are an amazing feature to add to your Arizona Backyard.

Add Patio Shades


Patio shades are another option that will improve your entertainment space. Make your backyard patio comfortable for your guests, by opting for a zipper-sealed track- as it helps to keep out bugs and blowing debris out without sacrificing the fresh air. Go for premium options by automating your patio shades, controlling it with a touch of a button via wall switch or smartphone.

New Patio Furniture


Labor day is the symbolic “end of summer” holiday, so many stores try to clear out all their summer merchandise to make way for fall and holiday decor. Patio furniture is no longer advertised, which means you may be able to snag a great deal on a brand new outdoor dining set or outdoor seating collection. Your best bet at this point is to try searching clearance sections in store and online.

 

Extend Your Entertainment Space


Awnings are the perfect way to increase the amount of space for your guests to mingle. Place a few extra tables and chairs for your gathering underneath your awning, and they will be protected from the sun & rain. If you choose a retractable awning, you'll be able to retract the awning back when your guests leave, protecting the longevity of your fabric, while hiding your awning discreetly. All Pro Shade Concepts are the Arizona Trusted Experts in the installation of static and retractable awnings.

 

Landscape


As the heat of the summer drops, start thinking about getting your winter grass seeded. Most Arizona lawns consist of Bermuda grass in the summer and Ryegrass in the winter. In the summer, Bermuda grass is able to tolerate the city's triple-digit temperatures. But, Bermuda grass is dormant during the winter months. For this reason, if you want to keep your lawn looking beautiful &  green all year, you have to plant winter rye grass. October is the prime month to start scalping your lawn & planting your Ryegrass seeds.

 

Outdoor Games


Lawn games are a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your family and inspire a little friendly competition. Bocce ball is becoming popular again, and cornhole (or bean-bag-toss, depending on where you’re from) is always a classic game to play. You may be able to find lawn games like ladder ball and croquet on clearance at certain stores this time of year too!
