Extension Ladder is an Eyesore

Bonnie SlaghtFLLiz Toone


I would love some ideas on how I can keep my extension ladder out to have it accessible but not have to look at it from my window bedroom. It is on my retaining wall.

    Mount the ladder horizontally on the wall instead of vertically. Is is still visible from your bedroom window.

    If so, then purchase ready-made lattice panels and position in front of the ladder.
    It will be a little initial expense to buy them and to get them anchored properly, but they will hide the still-accessible ladder and be low-maintenace year round.

    maybe put some potted plants on it, assuming you live in a climate where you can have potted plants outdoors all year.

    Is it propped up against the wall or laying on its side against the wall? I would think if it is laying on the ground, on its side against a wall, you could possibly use some lattice cut about 2 or 3 foot high and as long as the ladder as a way to block the view. maybe plant a row of plants like Hosta or flowers like Impatiens in front of the lattice. Good luck!

    Consider that you may be providing a ladder thieves, if it is easily accessible.
