Use a bit of cloudy plastic sheet or polythene to cover the see-through bits. You know the stuff, like frosted glass, transmits light but you can't see through it. Like in your garage door glass. It's cheap stuff.
Just pin or staple it to the wood, or make a light frame of wood scraps.

I've been doing the exact same thing. A couple things you can do depends a little on the amount of privacy you want and the amount of space you have. For example where I live, I can plant flowering quince hedges (zones 4-8) and I have a crape myrtle tree. These are easy at keeping things private because they are dense, provide cover, and they are also beautiful. Some things that I'm also using is acrylic light panel covers where there may be holes in my constructed wall designs. Some things I noticed from your pictures is that your plants are very thin and don't have dense foliage. Perhaps that's what you need. Here's a few ideas of good cover you can get from simply choosing the right plants.

Some really great cover from both unwelcome sound and sights can come from
Flowering Quince (Zone 4-8)
Arborvitae (Zone 2-7)
Arrowwood Viburnum (Zone 3-8)
Spirea (Zone 5–9)
Shrub Rose (Zone 3-10)
Hydrangea (Zone 3-9)

To understand what I mean about Zones, here's the plant hardiness maps.

It helps you figure out what plants work best where you live. Aside from giving you a good idea of what grows best in your garden, it also helps determine how the hardiest choices for your garden plants in general instead of just going to the store and buying what you see. You can also clip off flowers for Buddha puja as well.

Thank you, for the advice of plants. Interesngtly my father had bought some cover plant for the floor but i dont know if it would work. I have some cissus in the other side but i will ask first before buying it. I am meditating very great there, it is very helpful, instead of being inside my house. The green pine is nice.

Thick plant cover does wonders for soundproofing and shielding an area from onlookers. The thicker the shrub/hedge the better. They work better than fences because they completely block sound that would be carried on the wind, and they often grow thicker with every pruning done right. Taking good care of your hedging is also good for your health and well being because it challenges you to go outside regularly and get good fresh air. Another thing you could do if you want some nice white noise is to build a small water garden with a fountain in a wooden barrel. Container water gardens allow you to get a chance to practice Kasina meditation as well as looking beautiful.

Thank you, maybe in the long term, i had seen very useful ways of build a home, making a wall of plants seems great, near where i live is a home with many trees in the line yard, which seems imposible to trepass, also i had seen today a house being built with recycled plastic bottles, and also there are in youtube some videos of how to build a house with some water https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn1DEeyqaT4 I think it is nice, im trying to get some apple sedds to became trees, i had gotten one to sprout. I want to have many fruit trees in thegarden. And then do something useful with the fruits, also if i can i will give them away to someone.
Good morning, have a nice day
