The Client’s Challenge

The client wanted to add privacy to its rooftops, balconies and interior apartments by using the beauty of nature. 

Using nature to add privacy can be challenging for many reasons, however. It can be difficult to find the right plants that will not only provide privacy, but also look good and complement the existing design. So, there are many factors to consider when choosing plants for privacy, such as light and water requirements, size, and growth habit. 

Another challenge is making sure that the plants chosen will not pose a safety hazard to those who live or work nearby. It can also be difficult to find plants that will provide adequate privacy without blocking out too much light or views

The Jay Scotts Solution

Adding different levels of heights to control the views was the ideal solution for the client. It lets them add beauty and privacy to their spaces by creating visual interest and blocking unwanted views. 

By adding height variation, they were also able to control the amount of light and privacy in their spaces. Conscious of how designs and different heights can influence the desired effect, taller elements were added near windows to block unwanted views and add privacy, while lower elements provided a more open feeling.

The Client’s Result

Adding height creates a more dramatic view, while also providing privacy and protection from the elements. In addition, adding height helps to control the amount of sunlight that enters an outdoor space, making it more comfortable to spend time in.


A Closer Look – The Jay Scotts Difference

By varying the heights of plants, structures, and features in your outdoor space, you can create a more interesting and enjoyable area for everyone to enjoy. Selecting taller varieties of trees increased the amount of privacy and seclusion. 

The diverse range of Jay Scotts planters made this project possible. Marquise Properties were able to deliver, install, and arrange products from a single supplier, enabling them to stay ahead of project deadlines and create synergy within the hardscape planter design.
