Our Favorite Privacy Pergola Picks

You know that pergolas are the in-demand outdoor accessory that will absolutely transform your backyard style. You may even know that pergolas can be a great source of shade in a small package. But what you probably don’t know is that pergolas can also make your deck more private and secluded, just like a privacy fence. That’s why we’re highlighting all of our privacy pergola options for your next backyard renovation.

At The Backyard Showcase, we craft a wide selection of outdoor structures, including our popular pergolas with privacy screens. In our blog today, we’re highlighting your different options for varying levels of backyard privacy. Read on to get inspired — or reach out right now to design your custom privacy pergola!

Pergolas with Privacy Screens

If you have a nosy neighbor that you need to block out or you simply want to create the feeling of backyard seclusion, a privacy pergola is a great place to start. We build pergolas with privacy screens out of pressure-treated lumber, cedar, and vinyl.

Whether you want a full privacy wall or lattice, you have options. Our pergola privacy screens come in the following selections:

36" privacy wall w/ lattice
69" privacy wall w/ lattice top
Full privacy wall
Lattice corner
Lattice top

The beauty of renovating your backyard is that you can build almost anything you want — to tailor your yard to the exact way you’ll use it. While you can do almost anything you want when adding a pergola with a privacy screen, these are the 2 most common uses we see time and time again:

  1. Privacy for a Hot Tub — Having a hot tub in your backyard is one of life’s ultimate luxuries. However, if your neighbors are a little too close (or a little too nosy), then a privacy pergola is the perfect solution. A pergola is the right size to block a hot tub, and it adds even more of the HGTV backyard luxury you crave!
  2. Secluded Sitting Area — A pergola can really tie a space together, and adding a wall makes it feel even more like a separate space. Building a standalone sitting or reading area on your deck or hardscape is one of the most popular options we see. In addition, this type of privacy pergola also pairs well with a roof or canopy.

Cover Options for Your Pergola

Not only can your new pergola turn your backyard into your own private oasis, but it can also keep you protected from the sun. Outfitting your pergola with a privacy screen lets you build a total-coverage outdoor structure while maintaining the slim and trendy shape of a pergola.

These retractable screens can be easily attached to any of our different pergolas. This gives you the option to take in the sun or sit in the shade while you enjoy your pergola. For maximum shade, you can even build a custom lattice roof over top of the pergola beams themselves as a way to create even more protection from the sun. However, for true protection from rain, you’ll want to opt for a pavilion or a gazebo. These are just a few of the many custom options you can select when you build your pergola with The Backyard Showcase.
