Soundproofing Tips for Your Backyard

Soundproofing Tips for Your Backyard
September 07, 2018

Is it really possible to have a soundproof backyard? While you can’t turn your backyard into a total monastery retreat, there are certainly steps you can take to control the noise in your space for a more pleasant and relaxing experience for you, your family and your guests. Backyard soundproofing can be done by installing sound-absorbing barriers such as shrubs, fences or even water features to cover up unwanted outside noise.

Types of Backyard Soundproofing Options

Backyard soundproofing can be done by installing sound-absorbing barriers such as shrubs, fences or even water features to cover up unwanted outside noise. Learn more about the ways you can reduce noise in your backyard:

Shrubs and Hedges– you may already have these controlling sound in your backyard without even realizing it. Plants tend to be great sound absorbers and can afford you a measure of visual privacy as well. They also look nice and are great for the environment, releasing more oxygen into the air for everyone to enjoy.

Water Features– Another combination of a naturally pleasing aesthetic and effective sound control, a nice water fountain or similar water feature can create some delightful white noise effects that relax the mind as they cover up surrounding harsh noises.

Fences– Ultimately, the more enclosed an area is, the easier it is to control the sound within that area. While the only way to completely enclose a backyard area is with some kind of pergola or sunroom, a good fence can do a lot for keeping your sounds from disturbing the neighbors and keeping them from disturbing you.

To really make sure that your fence does the trick, outfit it with some of Soundproof Cow’s acoustic panels. Our Perforated Wood Art Panels provide a natural look for your backyard while keeping your music or conversation from escaping to areas beyond your backyard.
