Home Depot Virtual Party
Vertical (Succulent) Garden
*This post is sponsored by The Home Depot
Welcome to The Home Depot Virtual Party!! For today’s party, DIY bloggers created a customized version of this beautiful Vertical Succulent Garden…
On Thursday, April 20th, this project will be the featured build at Home Depot DIH Workshops across the nation. I know what you’re thinking…is there a class near me? Click HERE to find out! Also, you can click HERE to give your feedback on this and previous workshops!
If you’ve never attended a Home Depot Workshop, there are three types of Workshops—Do-it-Yourself (DIY), Do-it-Herself (DIH), and Kids—geared toward all ages and experience levels. The workshops are held at every store, and offer a variety of topics ranging from home repair to tool instruction, and even building home decor projects!! Not to mention they’re a great place to work on your skills and meet new friends who love to DIY!
Okay so without further ado, here’s how I customized my Vertical Garden:
I first cut and assembled the 1 x 4 top, bottom, and end pieces. To customize my planter, I added a mitered frame to the face of the box. To do this, I glued and nailed mitered 1 x 4 boards flat on the front edge of the planter, flush with the inside edge of the box. Next I added chicken wire and landscaping fabric, before finishing with soil and a plywood backing. Lastly, I added plants (you can choose succulents or other hanging plants from your local Home Depot). Because we’re in the northeast, and our weather hasn’t quite warmed up yet, I added some plants (real and not-so-real for now—wink wink) and plan to hang this indoors until we set up the deck in a few weeks!
What do you think? How would you customize this project?
