Not everyone has a garden outside, some of us live in big cities and have only a small balcony but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have beautiful flowers or fresh herbs and veggies grown by yourself. You can create your own balcony garden choosing the type of it depending on the space you have. If the balcony is rather small, you can make a cool vertical garden, it’s suitable even for the smallest spaces, and you’ll get fresh herbs. You can try to attach the planters to the balcony grid or just build your own wood construction where you’ll fix the planters.
Let’s get started, prepare wood, a primer and beige paint, flower pot clips and eight 6” pots, a nail gun, drill, and saw of your choice, screws, pencil, assorted sandpaper. Give all of the pieces a quick sand using 150-grit sandpaper. Then it’s time to create the base box, which is necessary to keep the weight in the bottom of the vertical planter so that it can safely stand alone. Build this base box by first using a nail gun to attach all four sides to the bottom. Then, pre-drill holes to avoid splitting the wood and add reinforcing screws at corners and other key pressure points. Pull out a clamp and clamp the pieces together, pre-drill, and then drill the screws in. Keep reading the tutorial in the source.
