I have to agree with FullSun. Communication with neighbors is the key but I'd still do what I could to provide us with as much privacy as I can. Trees and shrubs work great and tell your neighbors; "even though you're okay with seeing me/us nude, we are going to try and minimize that." Our current next door neighbors have known of our nude life by seeing us for the last several years. Even though there's been no mention of it or cops at the front door, we've gone the extra mile to shield their view with landscaping.
We've done so for those neighbors we don't know at all. Those across the way in 2 story homes, we've planted tall shrubs. I suspect that our yard will have 100%, absolute privacy in another 5-7 years, just as we're about to sell and move away.
You're fortunate. I, am, too, because I have no neighbors who can look into my back yard. Well, I think that one can if he stands on his porch, but I've heard no complaints. The back yard currently looks like a disaster area due to some re-landscaping my wife is doing, but at least I have privacy there when I'm working on my own projects.
I can only go out at night because I live in a fairly well populated neighborhood with moderate vehicle traffic during the day. I also live on a corner lot with very little fencing. What fences I have are 6 ft. tall and between neighbors to the south and west. I sat out tonight for about 20 minutes. Really nice weather for hanging out naked and no car traffic this late (11:30 pm).
For me, out front and living in a tract home, I pick my times carefully but they aren't always completely private. Just this morning, I took my 4:30am morning stroll out in the front, on the porch and on our front patio. While doing so, one neighbor lady came home from working the casino down the road. I don't think she saw me but even if she did, she and her mother have seen me naked in our garage and while I was helping my wife unload groceries. They just smiled and waved. I was good friends and a neighbor to their late husband/father.
I can safely sit naked on our porch til around 5:45a. After that time, a few people in the neighborhood begin their morning routines, most walking their dogs. Though, I could remain and just keep my legs crossed and they can't really see anything, I won't take a chance that someone will call the cops and make up some BS story about me doing something other than sitting and drinking my coffee.
When we sell this home, we will probably move someplace where we'll have even less privacy but will mostly likely spend more time at our club and we may even buy a place there for weekends and longer stays.
I don't worry about the neighbors. I have a fence that sheilds me on two sides but houses on the other two sides can see me nude. They don't care really. They may stare a bit or say hi and I say hi back. I am unashamed to be nude as is my husband.
I live out in the country and I have neighbors across the road and through the woods and across an 80 acre field I'll lay out nude they don't see me sometimes they cut the grass nude on my zero turn some see me they just wave they don't say nothing I don't think they can really see the private parts on the lawn mower but I really don't care I'm not ashamed of my body I love being nude so but car sees me big deal but I know people that live in the city got to have it hard especially if they enjoy this kind of freedom
We live on a secluded piece of property on the water. I am good on 3 sides and just smile and wave as boats go by. It is funny to hear boats say to there passengers that is where the naked guy lives
I dont have issues with the neighbors. We have a gate and only a few people have access codes. One is the mail lady so she can delivery packages that dont fit in the mailbox. Today I was working on my back deck, nude as usual, and was busy when I hear the horn sound. I look up and the mail lady drove up. Where I was she would not have seen me. I go in and get some shorts. I go out to get the mail which had a long box. Anyway, I told her I prefer being nude and put on shorts so I would not offend her. She told me she would not have a problem with it. So, next time she brings mail and I am out there I wont worry about offending her.
I hope to create a backyard nude oasis soon too. Currently, we are in a rental house and the backyard is a fairly large size, but its a fishbowl! Its open to both side neighbors AND the neighbor behind us -- only a 4' chain link fence separates the yards.
Since we are renting, I don't want to invest too much into fencing or landscaping. So, we're going to create a wire and curtain system to hang from the steel patio covered area. It'll make a nice 12' x 13' enclosed area. We're also thinking of getting a portable/inflatable hot tub for the patio.
