Sometimes you just need to get away from all of the noise, the business of life, the clamor of a house full of people and sink back into a backyard oasis. That can be a little tough if you’re living in a city, neighborhood, or subdivision. Even if you have the requisite 7-foot privacy fence, your view may be marred by its plain lumber aesthetics or you might still be caught up in the noise of yard work or the sounds from the swing set. These problems can be solved with a little inspiration and a bit of DIY magic.
