This might be one of my favorite projects. It costs almost nothing, took only one afternoon to put together and made more space in our little backyard for running around.
I'm a sucker for vertical gardens-see my vertical herb garden and farmer's market inspired stand projects as proof - but this was way easier and has a little quirk to it too.
If recall my Italian themed Christmas party a few years ago, you know I'm a fan of the beautiful design on the Scalino tomato cans. I just hate throwing them away so giving them new life as planters was a win. What goes better with tomatos than basil?
The "GROW" sign was an incantation for my garden to keep thriving despite a black thumb as well as a fun way to hide the ugly chain link. Made with cedar shims and bolts, I think I could use a few more planters to fill out the look but its a start.
So what do you think? Anything I could add or should I just let nature take over?
Do you have your own vertical gardening tricks to share?
