Backyard Love

198299189812738395_PvFfWG3z_f1What 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. (Trays, from $39.95; verticalgardeningsystems.com)

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).

So what do you think? Give me your comments and feedback below. And, oh, by the way, don't forget to tell a friend if you like what you see! xo
