We are always looking for inventive ways to utilise our gorgeous screens, so often we see them cladded beautifully on fences and walls or surrounding hot tubs on a warm summer’s day. However, one of our very first key objectives for the screens was for them to be used to hide eyesores such as bins, deteriorating walls or ugly fencing.
One question we get asked frequently is ‘how to hide your AC unit’ and our wonderful friend Pamela Noble has done just that, hiding her air conditioning unit using our cream verdure screens! This project is a prime example of such an easy project making such an impact, changing an ugly area of the garden into a stunning, decorative piece that so effortlessly blends into the garden with its botanical design.
Pamela discusses her gorgeous transformation with her followers:
“I love our backyard, but I hate what an eyesore our air conditioner is and where the builder put it. This blends in so nice[ly] now with our backyard and [has] created a cosy nook for one of our chairs to go in.”
Pamela has created a fence using medium scream verdure screens around the small AC unit in her garden against the wall in her back garden, privatising the area of her garden that she dislikes so much.
Want to recreate this at home? We’re here to help! You will need 6x medium, cream verdure screens and 4x 4ft cream posts. Simply drill your baseplates into the ground and slot your screens into the channels, simple as that! A full video of this can be found on our Instagram (of course you can use any design and colour you want, adapting the sizes to the dimensions of your projects!)
We have seen our screens used similarly in the past, often we are asked for ideas to hide wheelie bins in your gardens. In the same way as Pamela, this client has used our Moucharabiya screens to hide this unsightly area in the garden. Again, this is such a simple yet effective project, improving your garden design whilst hiding unsightly sections of your home and garden that spoil the look!
For this project, the customer has again drilled the posts into the ground using the baseplates and inserted the screens, hiding the bins behind the veil of screens! In this instance, the customer has used two, large, black Moucharabiya screens in 16mm and 2 6ft posts.
