My family home has an enclosed pool and deck with screening. The house is in an regular neighborhood, with houses on both sides, but at the back of the house, there is a small nature preserve and no building can be conducted there. One side of the pool enclosure has privacy boards set against the screen and the other side is screened by the house. The back wall has no privacy boards but as there are no buildings there, there isn't much of a privacy issue unless someone is walking through the yard. It's perfect and we are lucky!
