Your home improvement questions, answered by professionals from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), an association of remodeling professionals committed to providing consumers with high standards of quality, honesty, integrity, and responsibility.

Question:

How can I go green with an attractive outdoor clothesline?

Do you have any ideas about what type of structure I can build to disguise my outdoor clothesline?

Answer:

The only way that would still allow air to effectively get to the clothing is to plant tall vegetation around the clothesline. This will allow the air to get through but will shield the view from neighbors.
