I am building a privacy wall for an outdoor patio (uncovered), out of the framing from 2 folding privacy screens attached to flower boxes for stability.
I can't figure out what to replace the rice paper that was on them with that would allow the wind to still get through, yet provide privacy. I considered usiing bamboo shades, but they are too see through. I would like to have vines growing up them. My latest idea is cutting 2"strips of canvas to create a criss cross pattern with, so that the wind could still get through, yet it would provide more privacy than the blinds would have. I have also considered attaching wrought iron trellises, but again, the privacy problem.
If the wind can't get through, I am afraid a good windstorm will just destry them.
I need some creative help!
