Has anyone ever done something similar to that? I'm thinking to fixing my late grandma's village house, but my main concern is its proximity to a busy highway that's half a kilometer away through just a field and this muffled sound of traffic can get annoying.

The thickest, tallest concrete wall you can build, with a row of even taller trees on the inside of the wall.

I'd probably do double or triple glaze windows first
If that's not enough then id do professionally blown insulation in your walls.

If that's still not enough, then id start looking at walls. Around here in California they are just cinderblock walls like 12' tall. Sometimes two walls in parallel. It's so far away I don't know how effective it would be unless it was quite long.

I have one of those walls literally in my backyard, and am old enough to remember what it sounded like before it went up. It was a massive improvement.

It is also, notably, still massively noisy anyway.

OP, sound insulate your house. There really isn't a solution to this problem.

OP here. I haven't noticed any annoying sounds while inside the house, but next time I go I really need to listen carefully. The problem is the garden outside.

Wall, trees, bushes.

Also feed the birds everyday, year 'round, it will change your sonic focus.

Earth berm with gabions on top, need to learn to handle the heavy machinery to put up the berm and fill the gabions. Only way to do it cheaply.

Sound proofing needs mass, not shrubs. Plants are just to cover up the fuck huge tons of dirt and rocks.

Stands of bamboo is an age old noise blocker, fyi. They don't get rid of everything of course. I mean shit, I live 4 miles from the nearest highway and I can still hear it very well on some foggy mornings. There's nothing but massive hills and forest between me and the highway too.

I'm sure the folks at home depot would love to help you with that job.

You fucking nigger, fuck off. Invasive weeds are not a reasonable solution.

>>1242204
true bamboo actually isn't that invasive because it only spreads asexually, except for when it flowers, which is only every 80-130 years depending on variety.

It can be a huge PITA to get out of your yard once established but it won't take off and destroy your local environment like kudzu, knotweed, mimosa, opuntia, etc.
