You are not entitled to visual privacy in your backyard. It should be clear any planting activity will be monitored for everyone's safety. Also, it should be clear any infrared emanations from your home is open to scrutiny (plain and apparent is infrared after all) and could be reason for a raid.
Edit: this made me think of Kyllo v. United States. Very interesting it was the conservative wing of the SCOTUS that got the charges for a grow up dropped while the liberal wing felt police monitoring infrared emanations of a person's home without a warrant was permissible.
