What a lovely way to dress up an empty wall or fence in the backyard! When I saw this on countryliving.com I knew what my weekend project (one of these weekends) was going to be.
Honestly, it’s a lot easier than you think. Not too expensive either. Here are the instructions and all of the information you’ll need in order to have a beauty like this of your own.
How Trays Work: Similar to nursery flats, these rectangular, plastic trays are divided into planting cells — all slanted at a 30-degree angle, with bottom holes that promote drainage and aeration. Each tray comes with a bracket for mounting, though you’ll need to add a wood frame to achieve the “wall art” look above.
Plant Them With: Succulents like these, which have shallow root systems, are well-suited for trays with 2″ x 2″ cells. Opt for the larger 4″ x 4″ cells when planting small annuals, perennials, and edibles (such as lettuce). Speaking of edibles, you might want to check out this guide which provides a list of the most cost efficient crops that will provide the highest return on your plate and your wallet. Because hey, who doesn’t love to save a little cash?!
