Privacy fence idea for a second level townhouse deck

psychofanNovember 5, 2012

We've recently purchased a new construction townhouse and, of course, with a second 10' x 20' level deck that is adjacent (practically touching with about 6 inches of separation) to the neighbors. To create some semblance of privacy, we're contemplating installing a couple of White Vinyl Outdoor Privacy Screen (specifically these Shop Barrette 61-in x 37-1/4-in White Vinyl Outdoor Privacy Screen see on the sides of our decks (Trex composite).

As you can see from the installation instruction under the 'View Demo' link, these screens are normally installed directly into the ground (with a 18" to 24" pole). My initial thought is to attach the poles to the deck along the outside length. Question is, would this be feasible, in terms of safety and sturdiness? What kinds of U-shaped bracket to use?

Can't really speak to the product you envision. if it were me, I would try to find some vegetation in the vine form that would propagate and be hardy. I believe ambiance truly suffers when a "structure" is installed. imo
