Hello, I live in Paris, Ontario and built a new home in a typical city lot subdivision. My back yard is very small with nearly no privacy beyond a 6ft fence. The rear neighbors have two-storey homes that can easily see into my backyard space.

I am looking for ideas for getting privacy via trees,etc. for example that can have maximum height beyond the 6ft fence (dream would be 10+ feet above fence line, so 15+ feet from ground if possible).

Open to any suggestions including building the trees up from the ground to allow quicker options to get height from start, etc... Hoping someone can help me here - really need some privacy!

There are places that you could plant large trees, but the cost will be huge... You have the cost of transportation, digging and planting and then there is how to get the trees and equipment into your back yard is another issues

You could also try to apply for a permit to build a high fence but unsure if you will be successful on that.
