Make It: Vertical Garden Rack

Make It: Vertical Garden Rack


Last week, we did a roundup of small space gardening ideas. Well, the folks at Lowe's have thought of one more. This vertical gardening rack is a lovely way to bring the eye up in your small space. Plus, since it's a DIY you can customize it to favorite colors. See what you need to build your own rack.


Cedar boards and conduit pipe make up the bulk of the racks and planters, while metal strapping provides a decorative touch.

There's a full list of materials and step-by-step instructions on Lowe's Creative Ideas. If you want a shorter version, you can just halve the height for a 3-box planter rack. And if you're planning to plant directly in the box, be sure to drill drainage holes in the bottom of your planter boxes. 


What colors would you pick? I'm thinking shades of green would look nice on our patio and compliment our Big Green Egg!
