Odd Corner

What should I do here so it looks prettier and hides the playground in the background?

The white fence appears to be on top of the stone wall, not behind it. If that's the case, how about vines growing up and over the railing?

A screen made of weatherproof materials...vines can be put in pots and grown up it also...if a vine in a pot or container is allowed...Or plant some tall shrubs or plants there if able.

You could landscape it, fill it in...either with plants, etc...or with stepping stones of some kind or landscape brick...how much do you want to do in terms of size of a project?

If you're looking to hide the whole wall, you could fill that planter with clumping bamboo. (Do not get running bamboo; it's terribly invasive.) It grows fast and tall and makes a great privacy screen.

HI -- Perfect area for a tri -angle gazebo or shade structure with the lattice back walls made big enough to fill that whole corner . That could be a nice seating area .

You've got a lot going on in that corner with a mish-mash of plants. I'd be inclined to rip out all landscaping and start over with a consistent tall plant (like clumping bamboo or carolina cherry laurel...stay away from ficus cause roots get huge and invasive) along both back fences with smaller flowering shrubs in front.

Keep the grass, but expand the planting beds.

Eliminate most of the potted plants and do one large pot with a small palm or sago underplanted with colorful annuals.

chances are you will not be able to grow anything on that fence. so i suggest get a gazebo that is tall enough that blocks the view, which eliminates your problem with the grass and creates a useful corner.

Can you replace the metal part of the fence in back with white pickets between the posts? It would hide the majority of the playground. If you can't remove what's there, you could attach a section of short picket fence between the posts that would be completely removable if necessary. Use either L-shaped brackets attached to the posts, or U-shaped ones that wrap around the metal part and screw into the pickets. Something like this, but with the pickets closer together to block the view:

Then it would probably be a pretty dramatic addition to the yard. I'd say it's better than looking at that monstrosity on the other side! :) It would give you some privacy and act as a nice backdrop for plantings against the stone wall. How about that white wall (?) in the corner...is it yours or the neighbor's? If yours, can you paint it a muted gray to blend more with the stone wall so it fades into the background more?
