Q: I recently moved into my house and now that summer is around the corner, I want to buy patio furniture and start having people over for BBQs and drinks. The problem is the looming, unappealing-to-the-eye duplex next door which has windows facing down into my yard. I haven't touched the patio since moving in, aside from building the fence, so nothing is concrete and I would love budget-friendly suggestions. Thanks!
