Peter’s Backyard Screen
A desire to hide the wheelie bin area inspired this DIYer to create a backyard oasis.
Handyman reader Peter Knoll needed to build a screen to hide the wheelie bin area from the rest of the yard.
This desire inspired him to create not only a timber screen but a pond water feature and seating area as well!
‘As a novice handyman I’ve been tackling all sorts of projects. I needed to hide the bin area in our backyard and decided to build a timber screen to block it off,’ says Peter.
‘I also wanted to expand the area with a pond water feature and decking for a makeshift seating area.’
