    I’ll review
    I’ll see if this channel is useful
    Hope it’s not complicated nor labor intensive

    Even though these are beautiful, the wind wouldn’t be able to flow through. Using more plants to use as a wall is probably best.

    Very nice . I’m glad to see your video and I’m a new subs.

    I was surprised to learn that in some places you need a permit to pour cement in your backyard. I was able to find out that in my area the only thing I can work around for privacy DIY was a Pergola and doesn’t require a permit. fences can go up to 8 feet .I love the Idea of the Bamboo-in-tin-cans!

    Too bad they ruined every space with a tv

  6. Eric Israel on June 24, 2020 at 7:17 pm

    A lot of great ideas! Torres property The trellises you made and attached to the wall with Jasmin They are white. What are they made of metal or wood? Where do you get the legs? I have a side of my house that is plain and i have some extra honeysuckle plants I think those trellises screwed into the brick of the house would look great.

    Hilarious – we could all do this is we were rich….let’s see clever and affordable..there is a true skill.

  8. mark markyyy on June 24, 2020 at 7:21 pm

    This was one GREAT video. The different views, explanations, ideas etc. were top notch! I’ve seen a lot and I mean a lot of videos on backyard ideas, fences, plants and this video just ran the gamut of different types of things you could do for your yard. I just had to hit the like button and immediately subscribed. Keep up the great work!

  9. Candeekissez on June 24, 2020 at 7:22 pm

    Let’s get real here. How many average, everyday people can afford this? This is for the rich and famous.

  10. Rheta Storozuk on June 24, 2020 at 7:24 pm

    Do you have any tips on sound barriers when thinking of creating privacy? We had built a canopy with a tin roof and neighbors says he can hear all of our conversations now.

  11. SopranoJessi on June 24, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    Amazing!!! Thank you for the tips, and beautiful work!!

  12. Chris Milton on June 24, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    Good tips Micah! I’ve been looking for better privacy screen options for our townhome projects with such a small outdoor space

  13. Brenda Fetscher on June 24, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    Our neighbors did one of these it looks like crap on our side then parked their boat on the backside ugly

  14. Logan Drayson on June 24, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    Nice come check out my spot and share your ideas! 💯

  15. Lisa Webber on June 24, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    How about you show some ides for us poor people!

  16. 383 Stroker on June 24, 2020 at 7:31 pm

    I have no neighbors just the Arizonan Sonoran desert surrounding me

  17. KAT on June 24, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    Lovely. Outside my budget.

  18. Phillisha Darby on June 24, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    I like how informative this is. I learned a lot from this video.

  19. AMM0beatz on June 24, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    Nice, but I’m curious if building code are considered when building wall structure near the neighbors fence.

  20. Mark Gitschel on June 24, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    Start with a fence !

  21. Sid6902 on June 24, 2020 at 7:37 pm

    Where are these shots 🤷🏻‍♀️ this can’t be Oregon. Looks like FL

  22. The Monte Phone on June 24, 2020 at 7:39 pm

    Italian cypress
    How many per ft needed

  23. PierreVonStaines on June 24, 2020 at 7:40 pm

    Moral of the story: Don’t give next door the benefit of seeing you naked. Easily. 👍

  24. ItsInTheDetails on June 24, 2020 at 7:40 pm

    At 11:13 how tall can they get in those containers?

  25. Luz Renteria on June 24, 2020 at 7:41 pm

    This is a video the merkles should see cause their gettho screens are trashing and lowering real estate prices in tyler perrys L.A. neighborhood

  26. Paco Guzman on June 24, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    I like it a lot guess what you got yourself a subscriber 👍👌

  27. Ejsc isreal on June 24, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    It seems like many of these would block out the neighbours light. And you are quite rude about the neighbours, often calling their properties ugly. If your clients find the neighbourhoods so ugly, maybe they should spend their money more wisely and move somewhere they like the look of, rather then impose themselves and their light stealing structures on these neighbourhoods.

  28. Don Loughrey on June 24, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    Building walls in front of neighbors windows doesn’t seem too neighborly to me.
    But I suppose the conspicuous consumption crowd that you seem to target doesn’t care anyway.
    These outdoor room designs are cliche’.

  29. Remy D on June 24, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    can you plant bamboo in New England?

  30. mikes361 on June 24, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    I’m actually putting a roof on my pergola putting some bamboo shades in the inside and I’m going to get some of those horse stalls and put some bamboo trees along my fence because I got a weird old neighbor that stares over the fence trying to get a feel or look into our hot tub freak shows everywhere be aware

  31. greendang on June 24, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    I have a two-story apartment building looking into a very messy neighbor’s yard. From watching your video, I’m ambivalent between the Italian cypress and the Bamboo in metal trough. At least there’s a more tangible solution now. Many thanks for this wonderful video!!!

  32. The Monte Phone on June 24, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Here’s a challenge
    A tele pole in the middle of yard

  33. deemarkja on June 24, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    You wouldn’t happen to be located in Toronto? Humble but bang on. Please let me know. Thank you 😊

  34. The Monte Phone on June 24, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    Neat and clean lines

  35. Madame Rosa Fortune Teller on June 24, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    I didn’t expect to literally lmao watching this, but I did, and it was enjoyable to be honest. The constant repetition about the unsightly neighbors, all their unsightliness, and all the unsightly activities we might have to suffer through was super entertaining. OH! Those unsightly neighbors!

  36. D.A.D. Protection Services on June 24, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    Nice Ideas! Looking to do a privacy Screen in my Backyard Soon. On a side note What kind of Sunglasses are you wearing in beginning of Video?

  37. Dancingbee2 on June 24, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    I would be interested in seeing what the neighbor sees.

  38. Mark Gitschel on June 24, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    If you live in a mobile home park they have rules so watch it. ! My yard came out great under the park rules . !

  39. Brysn on June 24, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    I only have $10 to work with, I can loot materials if necessary

  40. lumberjackjo on June 24, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    I gave up watching because there was a giant banner blocking all the pictures…. Just my 2 cents worth… Soz

  41. Nick Gover on June 24, 2020 at 8:00 pm

    Screened the unsightly neighbor 😄

  42. JL Seagull 2.0 on June 24, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    Nice! Got some ideas for my DIY projects!

    No bamboos has in the ground!! They spread like crazy in a few years. Keep them in containers is okay.

  43. Shelli on June 24, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    "Here we put in a fireplace to block the neighbor. Here to block the neighbor we used a fireplace."

  44. Sheila Bush on June 24, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    Finally away to keep my creepy neighbors from stalking myself and my girls.

  45. Tejano37 on June 24, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    How is the stice property fireplace safe? The top chimney vent is below the rear house and very close being a fire hazard.and the Gilbert property blocking what appeared windows from a building seem like a law suite since it not only blocks their view into the next property but also the natural sunlight over time… very nice but some were over kill, And others questionable like the two already mentioned but thanks for sharing.

  46. The Monte Phone on June 24, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    Are there any before/after shots
    It’s hard to understand

  47. mark markyyy on June 24, 2020 at 8:07 pm

    I just read some comments on the lack of affordability pertaining to the things done in this video. I am not rich by an means, but I transformed my backyard, ( which wasn’t even my own land behind my house ) doing it piece by piece and section by section for the last 5 years or so. I too, used to lament the cost of building materials but….. if you’re not lazy and check craig’s list and go to the local re-use facilities that sell material taken from demo’ed buildings, or drive around the neighborhood on big trash pick-up days etc. etc. than you can do it. Seriously! Aside from the hot tub, (which I would like but truly can’t afford either) I have everything from bamboo, to an eight foot wide stone fireplace, pergolas, ground level decks, fountains etc. all made 60 steps minimum from the garage up to the area I made. I lost count of how many bags of gravel that I packed up there. It. can be done!

  48. The Monte Phone on June 24, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Are there any pictures of those neighbors view
    …who will see the blocked view
    I would like to see the blocked views please

  49. Odette Stremel on June 24, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    Great video! Never buy bamboo. No matter what the reason.

  50. Sheila Bush on June 24, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    At my work we always have broken skids and those would work perfect. It will be more work but you can make that wood beautiful with stain and varnish.
