5 creative ways to hide your neighbors’ unsightly backyard wall

My neighbors recently decided they wanted to build an addition to their living space. They are perfectly within their rights to do so, but it means a massive eight-foot concrete wall appearing where our garden fence once was, almost overnight.

Unfortunately for me, the wall became a dominant element in what was already a small outdoor space, blocking out where the setting sun used to shine on the patio and summer dining area. Instead, the sunset view is obstructed by the great monolithic structure. It takes a lot of creative vision to see what it currently looks like — a big gray slab of brick — and envision what it could look like, but constant Googling and Pinterest has given me comfort that there are so many design options to explore. With permission from my neighbors, instead of worrying, I see it as a design opportunity and a space to be creative.
