Bin screening and timber mailbox

Having an Impact
Having an Impact

This screening solution uses leftover Colorbond sheeting, Merbau decking and timber to protect the mailbox and hide the bins.





The project


I used Bunnings Merbau decking and ply, leftover Colorbond sheets as well as Pine and hardwood framing to create this screening for the bins and mailbox.


The curved Colorbond sheeting was left over from the pre-curved fence sheets I ordered to match the bull nose roof on the house.


How to build timber screening


Screening unappealing items like garbage bins and hot water systems doesn’t have to be difficult. See experienced Workshop member Adam's step-by-step guide How to build timber screening for a fast, simple and cost-effective project that can turn a problem area into an attractive one.
