Screen from Above. If your neighbors have a tall house or it's higher on a hill than yours is, shielding your deck or patio from view can be tricky. But one easy way to do it is to install a canopy of outdoor-friendly fabric as homeowners Brian Caldwell and Robert Shore have done here. Bonus: The canopy also casts a soft, filtered light on the patio, keeping it cooler on hot summer days.
Patio Idea - If your outdoor space doesn’t have an awning, create your own with a white fabric canopy. Have plenty of seating options (stackable stools, cushioned benches) so guests will feel welcome around the table.
