Re: the vertical gardens that i built

Thanks for the reply. I had a look at sleepers yesterday at bunnings. But 50mm is bit too thick for me as I am not looking for a bigger planter boxes. I might go with plastic as you suggested

Re: Vertical garden with built-in watering system

Hello @vanj

 

Here is the link to the step-by-step instructions: How to build a vertical garden. The guide also shows you a materials list so you can check for yourself and modify it as you see fit. It also depends on how you want to layout your project. Do you want just vertical planters or do you want to include the raised garden bed? I would conservatively estimate a budget of $450 (for the vertical planters and frame only). It's always good practice to check the timber prices before you purchase your materials as they often change. 

 

Adding an extra set of vertical planters will require you to add that extra cost to your estimated budget. I suggest drawing the plans on paper or computer to give you a better idea of how it will be assembled and where it will be positioned. This is a great opportunity for you to flex your D.I.Y. muscles. If you have any questions regarding this project, please don't hesitate to post them.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

 

Eric
