The time for summer sun and warm nights is approaching, which means we’ll be utilizing our backyards more often as a gathering and play space. With all the family and friends you’ll be hosting, you might want to consider privacy options. They can block excess sunlight, protect from weather, and of course, keep neighbors at bay. We've rounded up options to fit different backyard vibes.

Retractable screens are a quick and convenient solution for more privacy, especially if your backyard is on a smaller plot of land or your home is very close to the one next door. Once the outside festivities are done, you can easily store the fence away.
