DIY Vertical Garden Planters For Your Home


In the past few years, vertical gardens have started to become more popular. They’re an excellent way to add some greenery and life to any room in your home. This is especially true if you live in a small space with no yard or garden. Vertical gardens are not only easy on the eyes but they can also help purify the air. Luckily, you don’t need a green thumb to create a stunning vertical garden planter at home. In this blog, we’ll show you how you can easily take unused materials and turn them into beautiful new planters for your home that will make everyone ask where you bought them from!

You can make them from repurposed materials or buy them online. These vertical garden planters are a great way to add life to any home!

Here’s how you can DIY your own vertical planters at home:

  • Get the materials you need:
  • Plastic planters of your choice (I used three 14-inch diameter white plastic planters)
  • Plywood or other wood material for the frame. I used ¾” thick plywood, but you can also use Masonite or other thin chipboard.
  • Pick a design: You can make your own design by drawing on a piece of paper, or you can simply download one from the internet and trace it onto the plywood. Or, if you’re feeling particularly artistic and want to create something truly unique, just get creative with some paints and markers! Once you have your design drawn out on paper or traced onto your material, cut it out using either a jigsaw blade or hand saw depending on what tool you have available to cut through thick materials like plywood (Note: Be careful when handling sharp objects!). If using Jig saws make sure they have enough power so that they don’t get stuck halfway through cutting through wood pieces (e.g., cordless vs corded). It’s better if there are fewer cuts needed for each individual piece before assembly because this will save time during installation process later on down road…

Step 1: Get the materials you need

To begin the process, you will first need to gather your materials. For this project, you will need:

  • A frame
  • A planter
  • Potting mix
  • Watering can (one that’s easy to carry)
  • Garden hose (if you don’t have one available)
  • Pair of gloves and/or a pair of scissors for cutting the plants’ stems down to size when you are done planting them in the planters. It also helps if you have a drill and hammer as well as screwdriver handy because sometimes screws break or fall out after time has passed by.

Step 2: Get creative and pick a design for your planter.

Once you have your materials ready, it’s time to get creative. The most important part of making a vertical garden is the frame. You can use any material you want to make your planter: wood, metal or recycled materials are all great options! If you’re new to building things, I recommend using basic tools and simple pieces of wood as they’re easier to work with than more complex materials like metal or glass.

The easiest way is just by using some basic tools such as an electric drill/screwdriver (to screw in screws), pliers (to bend wires), saws (to cut wood) and sandpaper (for smoothing rough surfaces). On top of these tools, it’s useful if you also have clamps at hand so that objects stay together while drying after painting them for example – this will save time during construction!

Step 3: Attach the planters to the frame.

Attach the planters to the frame using screws. You may have a drill on hand, but if not, you can ask someone to help with this step.

  • Make sure you use a drill bit that’s long enough to go through both the planter and frame.
  • Use a screwdriver to attach each of your planters’ sides to each corner of the frame’s legs; make sure they’re level as you do so!

Step 4: Add your plants or herbs.

It’s time to add your plants! I used herbs in my vertical garden, but you can pretty much use any type of plant you’d like.

Once you’ve added the soil, it’s time to add your plants or herbs. There are many different kinds that can be used for this project, so choose whatever best fits your needs and home decor tastes.

You can either repurpose materials to build the frame or buy them online.

  • Old pallets or crates
  • Old doors
  • Wood, metal, plastic and wood. You can use wood for the frame and place a few stones around it as well. You can even use bricks to make a brick wall vertical garden planter which will look beautiful on your porch or patio.
