How to Add More Privacy to a Chain Link Fence

Chain link fences are a popular and affordable way to establish property boundaries and increase security around hedges and backyards, but they leave a lot of space for neighbours and passersby to peer in. The good news is that our chain link fence contractors in Toronto can help you add privacy to your fence. Here’s some inspiration:

Different Ways to Add Privacy to Your Chain Link Fence

Attach Lattice Panels

Lattice panels are a useful way to increase privacy around your home. The crisscross pattern looks beautiful with vines crawling up or with a garden below—there are many ways to dress up your chain link fence and add security with lattice panels.

Install Bamboo Screens

Bamboo fences or screens are a great addition to a chain link fence for privacy. They are an affordable alternative to some of the other options on this list and are quite easy to install. They will keep peering eyes off your yard and give you peace of mind as your kids and pets play outdoors. Another benefit of bamboo screens is that they are attractive and look natural for a tropical aesthetic.

Wooden Fence Panels/Slats

Another option to add privacy to your chain link fence are wooden fence panels. This installation works like the bamboo fence and closes the spaces up so there is less visibility into your yard. It is more durable than the bamboo poles, however, and can easily be tied to your chain link fence. Additionally, any type of wood can be sealed to extend its lifespan. You could also use pressure-treated cedar, which is naturally weather-resistant. These panels are heavier, which is why it is best to leave the installation up to the professionals.

Plant Dense Bushes and Trees

Not only do plants and trees add beauty to your property, they also work as natural privacy fences. The chain link fence will prevent trespassers and pests, and the bushes and trees will provide visible cover and aesthetic beauty to the simple and plain chain fence.
