Hide the AC Unit

Tools and Materials:

Four fence posts

One 4 x 8 sheet of plastic lattice

Three 8' strips of Lattice trim

Post hole digger

Circular Saw

Electric Screw driver

Concrete

I dug four holes and set my posts in concrete at each corner.

From the 4 x 8 sheet of lattice cut three pieces. Measure the distance from the bottom of your post to the top edge.

Measure the distance between the post and cut the lattice 1/2" smaller.

Cut and install (screw) a piece of lattice trim on each post. Slide the cut panels into the trim pieces.

    Concrete pad is larger than AC unit and posts are set outside the concrete pad. Or I just remove the lattice panels and change out the unit.

    This is a cute solution! We need to do something like this for ours.

    I LEFT THE BACK OPEN FOR SERVICE. Also I think you could cut your cost by cutting a treated 4 x 4 post in half, instead of fancy fence posts.
