  1. Thanks for the great ideas for privacy screens. My wife and I just moved into our house and we are looking for some ideas for the back patio area, including some privacy. I really like the outdoor privacy curtain idea; would these do okay in a rain storm? Thanks for the ideas!

  2. I loved seeing the wattle privacy screen you featured here! I can definitely imagine how nice it would be to have a privacy screen that was easily transportable like that. I would imagine that whether it be a screen like that or a more permanent installation though, you would want to be sure that it was well constructed so it would serve it’s purpose and hold up over time. i would probably hire a professional to build the screen once I knew which kind I wanted.
