3 Great Ways to Hide Those Unsightly Wheelie Bins

Whether you live in terraced property, a semi-detached or a detached property, or even a manor house, one thing is certain - the variety of wheelie bins and/or boxes that you will be "encouraged" to sort your kitchen, recyclable and garden waste into are at best, "not very sightly".

As these bins and boxes are now almost ubiquitous, there is a growing industry based around how to hide these wheelie bins from sight.

Traditionally, unsightly areas of the garden were screened off with trellis, plants and walls. But the wheelie bins need to be both accessible on a regular basis and able to be "wheeled out" once every one or two weeks for collection - so it needs to be in a convenient place and easily accessible - which tends to mean visible.

There are a myriad of products on offer to "screen off" these bins - at we are offering 3 quality ranges to help meet the many differing needs. All come from British Companies:

Wicker Wheelie Bin Screens with or without lids

We have sold these wicker wheelie bin screens for many years and have many satisfied customers.

These screens are handmade from Polish Willow enclosed in Treated Softwood frames to give rigidity to the screens and enable the iincorporation of opening doors and lids for ease of use.

These wicker screens blend in well when bins are stored in the garden or against a natural background.

They should be used on hard ground, concrete or brick to avoid the frames standing in the damp. They should also be painted with preservative at least once a year - a standard water-based fence of shed preservative is ideal and allown yu to "tailor" the colour somewhat to your garden or driveway.

If properly looked after like this, these wicker wheelie bin screens will last for years.
