3 Ways to Use the Area Under Your Deck
The common height for a deck is 3 to 4 feet from the surface to the ground. Some decks are lower and some much higher. So what do you do with the area under your deck? You can always close off the underside with lattice or other types of deck skirting, but why not use the space?

Lattice for Privacy in a Manufactured Home Park

Lattice for Privacy in a Manufactured Home Park

What is the definition of privacy? It means the quality or state of being apart from others. Each one of us needs a little privacy every once in a while, and we all have a desire to have that special place to relax and enjoy the solitude.

If you have neighbors that are a mere 15 to 20 feet away from your home, consider adding privacy screens to your deck and patio areas. Don’t let your neighbor’s close proximity keep you from enjoying a relaxing moment outdoors.

You can establish more privacy on your patio and deck area as you can make either location more inviting and comfortable when you install vinyl lattice. Vinyl lattice provides an economical and easy-to-use way to enhance both the deck and patio area while allowing your dream of privacy to become a reality. Lattice can create privacy while adding dimension and beauty to the appearance of your area. With vinyl lattice as a means of privacy, you won’t have the feeling of being boxed in. While privacy separates us, it does not have to make us feel like we are too closed in.

There are many ways and many places you can add privacy to your property in a manufactured home park. Lattice offers a variety of options to create a place where you are apart from the view of others.

Let’s look at the advantages of using vinyl lattice for privacy on your deck and patio.
