There are lots of reasons why you might be searching for privacy fence ideas. Perhaps your garden is very overlooked from neighbouring houses, or maybe it backs on to a footpath or pavement. Maybe your garden runs alongside that of your neighbours and your existing boundary is a little on the low side, making it difficult to dodge a conversation when you're just not in the mood. 

Privacy fences can also be used as a garden fencing idea to define certain areas of the garden, such as around an alfresco dining spot, swimming pool or hot tub, where the need for a sense of complete seclusion is paramount.
