I'd go with the trellis idea, Jacob. I had a similar problem with overlooking a tennis court as my garden is 18" higher than the courts, so I could see them playing which really removed any relaxation when I was in the garden (not to mention the loud grunts and shouting that tennis players seem to think is normal behaviour, but that's another story!) I put in 10 foot posts (2 feet concreted in the ground) in the middle of every fence panel (so the trellis was completely self-supported) and made 6' long x 2' high trellis panels which fitted between the posts. Even before they were covered in climbing plants they provided a significant increase in privacy.
