I'm looking for a presentable method to cover our wood piles. Since they are in our backyard in a suburban area, I have been banned from using the blue tarps, sheet metal roofing, etc. Since the consensus is that you only need cover the top, then I was wondering if this would be a good option: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=10290-278-LB01&lpage=none The stacks are lined up along our fence line so they are only 2' deep at the most and long, in 8' lengths (see pic below). Those were taken last spring and are now full almost all the way to the top of the fence. I was thinking that the 3' width would be perfect as it may drape over the front edge to direct snow away and it would be easy to get to the wood this winter. Our other alternative is Harbor Freight tarps which we would have to cut to width and then come up with a method to hold them down. I really don't want to just throw logs on top to hold it down, but will if it comes down to it.
