A shutter screen can be a good alternative to a more traditional looking trellis or fence line…
At our most recent design project in Maidenhead our client wanted us to install a modern effect shutter screen on top of their existing brick wall. This was to provide extra height as we had raised the ground level during landscaping works and it was important to our client to feel less over-looked by neighbouring properties. The photos below show the various stages of its construction.
The slats were cut to size on site to fit the gaps between the timber supports. They are mounted on the front and back in what is called a hit and miss effect – this arrangement allows for privacy and provides gaps between for light and a breeze to pass through.
At this stage the timber posts are yet to be cut flush with the screen as our client is undecided on how high they want the screen to be.
