Good Questions: Solutions for Patio Privacy?

Dear Apartment Therapy Readers, Since it's outdoor month, I've been working on my patio space. I recently put up matchstick blinds to deter my nosy neighbors from peeking into my apartment. While the packaging said that the blinds were made for the outdoors, they certainly aren't because I just realized that they're covered in mold. I am a college student on a low low budget and was wondering if anyone could help with another idea that is outdoor friendly and low cost. Thank you! I didn't take a photo of my matchstick blinds because they're green and furry now! But these are what my blinds originally looked like!

I'm always looking for an excuse to buy printed cotton twin-size sheets (this size is frequently on super clearance in New York) — these would also be easy to wash. Anyone else?
