How to Get Privacy and Prestige without Paying a Premium!

Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. Emails, phone calls, voicemails and text messages. In the digital age, it can sometimes seem as if we just don’t get a single moment to ourselves, just a slave to our mobiles, tablets and computers. This gradual erosion of privacy has started to grate on many people’s nerves and, in a bid to create a tranquil, secluded haven to relax in, they have used natural stone panels in a truly novel way to create effective, aesthe­tic­ally-pleasing privacy fences. Simple, quick and extremely cost-effective, the idea could work for your outdoor space too - read on to discover your own private world, designed exactly to your unique personal specifi­cation...

There are all sorts of reasons for wanting privacy in your own outdoor space, from practical purposes such as creating a modesty screen near a hot tub or swimming pool to avoiding the prying eyes of nosy neighbours! You may not have any definite reason at all and this is absolutely fine as well - the right to privacy is just that, a right. Indeed, UK legislation around privacy issues fills a sizeable chunk of the statute book and the topic is passionately debated in many diverse sectors from data protection to speed camera enforcement.

Creating a privacy fence using natural stone panelling is a simple and rewarding DIY project. Using stone blocks, bricks & timber is a pricey alternative that necessitates a lot of work - why bother when you can easily create a hand-laid stone fence aesthetic for a fraction of the cost and less than half the hassle? A timber frame will support the strong-yet-light natural stone tiles and the whole project can be completed in a day by a consci­en­tious worker.

As well as offering privacy, fences created in this way provide an excellent buffer against wind and a pleasantly-cool shaded area from the sun. It is even possible to create a movable fence thanks to the low weight and exceptional robustness of the stone panels. Any shape of fencing can be designed and installed with the Tier system - let your imagination be the only limit.

Privacy is at a premium in the digital age and so you should grab and embrace every moment. Increase the potential for these precious private moments by creating a prestigious privacy fence using products from the Tier Natural Stone available today at the most competitive price from Greengate’s builders merchant.
