This is a simple and cost-effective project that can be made using 1x6 (25x150mm) boards . Detailed plans and instructions are available for download, complete with images. The planter box and screen frame can be created from 10 6ft (1800mm) long 1x6 (25 x 150mm) boards and two 39-3/8" (1000mm) long 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 (38 x 38mm) boards. By making two or three of these, a private area can be created. The screen is 6ft (1800mm) high and can be placed in the front, middle, or back of the box. The planter is 43-3/8″ (1100mm) long by 16″ (410mm) wide, and can be easily moved around on its wheels.
