Vertical Garden

Submitted by imlewer on Wed, 04/11/2012 - 07:47

We don't have a ton of space in our back yard thats in direct sunlight. Also we have an ugly old chain-link fence. I saw a lot of vertical gardens and decided that would help two issues, maximize sun space and obscure part of that ugly fence. It's super easy to put together and was pretty cheap as well. I took some inspiration from the cedar raised beds on the site and built all the planter boxes out of cedar fence pickets. I added some extra supports so that the weight of the boxes wouldn't rip down the planters.

Estimated Cost
$120 (including material, posts, cement and hardware)
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Treated Pine Posts and Cedar Pickets

Thanks for this great idea and the photos of the details. What did you decide to plant? (Btw, all you need for that fence is a few cans of black spray paint!)
