Privacy Screen Keeps Blowing Over in the Wind

Answered
I recently purchased this privacy screen from Lowes. Less than a week after I purchased the screen I found it split in two after a windy evening. I can't seem to find a solution to acomodate the width of each panel (20"). The 2nd photo is one I found either on HomeTalk or Pinterest (or both) when I was searching for possible solutions. The issue is it is difficult to find a large enough base and not take up to0 much of the patio space (prime real estate).
