Jay Sifford Contemporary Landscape, Charlotte

I built this privacy screen out of concrete backerboard with a 2 x 4 and 4 x 4 frame.
This is an example of a contemporary landscaping in Charlotte. — Houzz

Did you finish the edges of the backerboard? Won't moisture degrade?

I used a concrete sealer. After ten or so years, very little aging has occurred. But, at $10 per panel, when I eventually need to replace them, it's not a big deal.

Yes. It was raw wood so I primed and painted it. Benjamin Moore makes a wonderful oil based paint called Alklyd. That is what I used.

Hi. That bench was actually purchased from Overstock.

I like the red color of this bench and spurs me on to paint my little table and chairs the same color. I think it will reallypop out in my garden.
