Zander and I have been seriously sprucing up our yard before it gets too hot to bear! We bought lots of new plants and got our DIY on! Sooo excited about this project, I’ve had it in mind since last summer and I absolutely love how it tuned out, it really makes a difference in our yard!
Here is a before photo which is actually from last year before we built the planter box along this fence, yuck!
So the steps are super simple. Zander cooks a lot of pizza so we saved the cans that the tomatoes came in until we had enough. Remove the labels and then punch a few holes in the bottoms for drainage. You can also use little tin buckets.
Spray paint the outsides of the cans and let dry. I used Krylon Basic Blue. Then spray at least the first inch of the insides, I went ahead and painted the full inside.
Once the paint is totally dry use screws to attach the cans to the fence.
We just eyeballed the positioning making sure to alternate heights.
Fill the cans about half way with soil, then plant your desired flowers or herbs.
Water the plants and you are good to go!
And this is how it looks a month later, look at how big our tomato plant got!
