Pull a little landscape sleight of hand by using a focal point to create a distraction. Any eye-catching object works if it draws more attention than the view you're trying to screen. Here, a small raised water garden captivates garden guests -- and adds a bit of tranquility.
I love that these lights aren't just straight across. I'd like for the lights to be criss-crossed and slanted, not all parallel to each other. The criss-crossing and slanted nature makes it feel more free and more "cute little Italian restaurant in the alley way"
