You can have some beautiful wrought iron furniture placed on your patio and then, the area where the patio's edge meets the ground below, that area can be cordoned off with a pair of high mounted linen curtains.
The linen curtains should no doubt match the overall décor of the house and of the furniture that you have placed on the patio. Color wise, you should ideally go for something in dark, earthy hues. Deep chocolate brown or deep olive green are some of the best options that you can try for outdoor linen curtains.

Suppose you have a pergola or just a covered seating area in your front lawn, where you like to spend the evenings with your family every chance you get. You'll want to ensure that your family is protected from prying eyes, right? Plus, it'll have to look good as well.
The best way you can ensure this, is to have curtains in solid colors like dark red, orange, green, navy blue, etc. adorning and surrounding this area. Solid, single colors will also absorb the dust and sunlight better than sheer ones, and need to be cleaned less often than the lighter ones.
