Increasing the height of boundaries may be illegal, so check with your local government first. However, it is possible to increase the privacy within your own yard without altering the boundaries themselves. Consider using trellises and pergola covers, which can support climbing plants, create privacy without blocking light to the rest of your garden and help create a sheltered microclimate by allowing air to pass through.
