Deck Privacy ideas

We have been in our home for ~ 2 years now. The back deck is covered and is very private... except for a view of our neighbors toys and back room. We want to increase our privacy back here, but need some suggestions. Our transplanted pampas grass here did not grow to full height. We have considered other trees/shrubs or outdoor curtains, but don't have any definitive solutions. What do you recommend here?

Thanks in advance,

I don't know where you are located but I'd consider hops. You can run ropes up to the deck for them to grow on. They are fast growing and will quickly get to your upper deck and block the view. And in late summer you'll have some really interesting smelling cones/flowers. The plant will die back in winter so you'll loose the screening from the first frost until mid spring when the bine has grown back.

It also wouldn't be too hard to make some panels to fit inside the openings above your guardrail and apply lattice to those frames.
