The task was to makeover a tired and falling apart fence/wall to disguise the air conditioning units located in the the garden area. Doing our part to cut down on waste in the landfills we planned an echo friendly project using as many recyclable objects as possible. Color, shape, durability, and function were key elements in our design process. This was an investment of time that was well worth the results. What do you think?
Design: size built to hide the air conditioning units, visually pleasing, colorful
Bottles: collect used bottles, sanitize, remove labels, drill holes, and rewash
Spacers: collect items to use as spacers in between bottles, we used gears on this project
Build Frame: purchase pressure treated lumber, cut lumber, assemble with screws and bolts, drill holes, stain and seal, and then mount in location.
Bottle Rods: cut rods to length, string on bottles & gears in desired patterns.
Final Assembly: place rods with bottles through holes in frames, add top bottles.
This is part of a bigger custom garden re-landscaping project using recycled materials. Yes, Ed did have to hold on to my feet a few times as I had to dig pretty deep in those recycling bins! Haha! The gears were left over from Sarah Etchells and Will’s wedding decor.

Looks like you left the lids on the top row. Great idea. Am wanting to do this exact thing to hide some compost bins. Thanks.
