are you feeling a little exposed while adding privacy to your backyard can be as easy as building some simple screens short well this is a really versatile design that you can build in various Heights to achieve a clean stylish look like this get started by laying out all your supplies I love that Lowe's will cut the lumber to size for you you can download the supply list along with the step-by-step instructions for this project at Lowe's creative ideas com this screen gets built from the inside out so we're gonna start with the interior frame once your inner frame is built it gets attached to the outer post with screws the posts are just two two by sixes with a 2×4 sandwiched in between this is a great time to stop and make sure that everything's squared up so before you attach the interior frame to your posts you're going to want to use this framing square and just make sure that you've got everything all lined up right remember when you're screwing into the end of narrow pieces you'll want to drill a pilot hole to prevent splitting now you can finish putting in the rest of the horizontal rails now it's time to add a little flash to your screen make sure you're wearing gloves when you do this with the flashing is sharp and you don't want to cut yourself just use a simple over-under weaving technique like you're weaving a basket and attach it to the inside face of the post with sheetmetal screws so the final step in your screen assembly is adding your last two two by six posts the great thing about cedar is you can either use it natural or you can stain it before you ever dig you should call your local utility locating service to check the area wouldn't want to suffer any services we should probably get a tape measure spend a little time thinking about the layout of your screens you want to position them to get the maximum amount of privacy but you also want the layout to make sense in relation to your house once you've marked the spots you can start digging the depth of the holes will depend on the code near area so check with your local building officials this is when you really get to see my muscles at work depending on your soil you may want to rent an auger to get the job done more efficiently to prep the holes place some gravel in the bottom for drainage then place the legs of the screen into the holes this is not a one-person job so get some help make sure it's level on the top as well as front to back and then you're going to use quick-set concrete to secure the screens so when you're mixing it up you're gonna want it to be the consistence you have peanut butter and you can always add more you're gonna hit some voids but that's just all part of mixing it up if you need to make any adjustments to keep it level don't worry the concrete doesn't set immediately so you can make slight adjustments if you need to all right we're almost there these screens have so much privacy it feels intimate and cozy without feeling walled off I also love that they look great from both sides so whether you're out in the yard or enjoying the patio feel it fantastic [Applause]

    Like the idea, but think I would use different mats….all I keep thinking about is, when the sun hits that metal it's going to blind you. Not to mention being sharp and getting hot enough to burn you (depending on where you live).

    No privacy, and too much work not to mention the cost.

    I so love these screens, no, they are not totally private, but you would have to be staring to catch a glimpse of somebody dining Al Fresco💁🏻‍♀️. They are modern and sculptural at the same time, only problem is, somebody got to make them 😏

    Hopefully the metal pieces aren't sharp!!! if you have kids think of safety while they're playing out in the yard… kids touch everything.

    Be a Good Neighbor…. consider what your neighbor is looking at and do not use redwood… which does not blend in with nature

    (to chocol8) It functions as as a screen but I would concentrate on the aesthetics. It doubles as modern art for the yard and looks fabulous!

    Looks nice, but the sheet metal is razor sharp! I'm sure there are other alternatives that can be used to weave.

    👸I have noticed that these young designers don't know what there doing at all!!!! There is no relation to the to the property, with these no private panels , they​ have a very modern look and the house dosen't, it looks terrible with the house!!! Cypress would of added privacy without a harsh industrial look, you could also put solar Christmas lights up!

    One other advantage they don't mention here is this screen also calls the Mother Ship home, conveniently saving you time and money on your long distance calls.

    Hard to imagine this in a subdivision. That flashing will be potentially blinding your neighbors daily, not to mention yourself.

    I envisioned something exactly like this for my backyard. Can't wait to get started on it. Only instead of shiny aluminum flashing I will use something dull but colorful because I have artificial grass. I don't need the sun reflecting heat waves on that.

    I guess Lowe's has too much flashing and 2x6s in stock.
    Anyway the sheet metal reflections must be annoying and looks cheap.
