A GARDENER has found a simple and aesthetically pleasing way to add privacy to her garden.
She said it only took $15 to buy a bunch of sunflowers.
Sabrina (@aspenackley) shared the garden hack with over 2.2 million TikTok followers.
“When we moved in, we started fencing our yard, but at the time we couldn’t afford to plant cedar trees or a hedge for privacy,” she explained.
Instead, the gardener turned to a much more visually appealing strategy.
“I planted a sunflower fence instead. This is a temporary privacy planting solution and cost me maybe $15,” she said.
“Sunflowers are so easy to grow and offer a ton of benefits, from edible seeds to food for pollinators.”
“By the second year most of the plants had retreated so I rarely had to plant any more and the chain link fence provided the best visibility and coverage.”
People used the comments to share their opinions on their hack.
“So cute! Better than a privacy fence,” said one commenter.
“My husband planted sunflower seeds for his mother. 20 years later they’re still growing back,” added another.
“100% and I wouldn’t change it later lol,” said a third.
“Oh my god that’s brilliant,” said a fourth.
“You just gave me the best idea ever,” said a fifth.
