Terracotta pot vertical garden screening

A fantastic screening solution using decking timber and terracotta pots.





The project


After building the structure and placing the decking timber in position, I started installing rope to hang the terracotta pots for this vertical garden. By creating two holes side by side on the boards for each pot, I was able to put rope through the first hole, knot the end and track it around the lip of the terracotta pot. I ran the rope through the second hole and knotted it at the back.


I recommend installing irrigation and putting it on a timer for those who are time poor. The irrigation lines can be hidden, poking out between the boards and discreetly watering the pots from the back.


You can also paint the pots to add a pop of colour. Have fun with it.
