Summer is the perfect time to make use of your deck. From simple lunches to elaborate dinners and even just relaxing with friends or watching your children play in the yard, decks are your go-to outdoor staging area now that the weather has given its O.K. With how cold it’s been, it almost feels like not using your deck on a daily basis would be rude to the planks that you’ve been neglecting all winter. Unfortunately not every property layout allows for privacy from your neighbors while enjoying your deck, but we’ve got some tips on how a wood deck builder in Maryland can make your deck more private for the summer.

Level of Privacy

The first step to securing your privacy is understanding what level you would like. Wood deck builders in Maryland can create both semi-private and fully private fences and coverings to help customize your experience.


Semi-private options are great when you’re looking to stop people from looking in but also want to be able to enjoy your view or not feel closed off from the world. This is an especially great option if you’re friendly with your neighbors or have a great view, but still want a tasteful barrier to provide some privacy.

Privacy walls made from trellis or semi-open fencing are both great options to not block off your view while still getting the job done.

Full Privacy

If you’re looking for a more private summer deck experience, you’ve got plenty of options. Fencing is the easiest and most simple way to completely block off your deck from the outside world and provide you with full, maximum privacy. But it’s not the best option if you’re only looking to protect your deck and have reason to leave things a little more open while still achieving full privacy.

Pergolas and gazebos can make for great additions to your deck, especially when combined with tasteful curtains and hanging plants which will elegantly give you full privacy with a hint of openness and plenty of fresh, summer air.
