Mine are simple; I start with attaching the 2x2s to the 2x4 frame, and attach the 2x4 frame to a 4x4 post, which is concreted into the ground. They're anywhere from 16" to 28" wide, and around 16" to 24" deep. Here is a shot of a few of them in the wintertime.
I'm guessing no kids or dogs in your backyard...
Actually, 2 young kids and 1 VERY active dog; all well-trained as to the importance of being careful around daddy's trees. This winter storage arrangement was temporary (the temp dropped from a steady 40 to 15 overnight). Normally, I put them under benches and put a fence around them for winter.
... You dont really need tro dig down so far (with the concrete footing) and it is easily moveable...
