soundproofing yard
« on: December 10, 2004, 12:30:54 AM »
How can I build an exterior soundproof wall that will keep my neighbors noises from traveling to my property? The fence line is 100 plus feet from my house- we live in a semi-rural area- I was thinking of straw bales, waterfalls, anything that might work

Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to do anything major about sound outdoors.  All you can really do is mask it with:  a sound machine that plays nature sounds, a real water fountain that gurgles a lot, or a white noise machine.  Also, a pair of good ear plugs will save your sanity.  Outdoor noise has caused me a lot of suffering in my life.  I long for complete quiet with only nature sounds.
