Measure your wheelbarrow, so you can build your sieve to fit comfortably across the top.
Cut the timber into eight pieces and fix them together to form two equal-sized rectangles. Smooth any sharp edges with sandpaper. Use pliers to cut the wire mesh to the same size as the frame.
Paint the timber with wood stain to preserve it and add colour, then leave it to dry.
Soil sieves (or riddles) are useful for sifting out large lumps from soil, leaf mould and compost, to leave you with a fine material suitable for sowing seeds.
Set out the lower half of the timber frame on a flat surface and place the mesh on top.
Screw the upper and lower parts of the frame together, sandwiching the mesh in-between.
