What You Need

Creating a living wall with Smart Spring's Vertical Gardening Kit is easy and requires a little sense of DIY will and a few tools. The great thing is the Vertical Gardening Kit attaches to any 4" wide board, which are found at any big box store that sells lumber - and it's an inexpensive project to build a beautiful living wall!

OPTIONAL: Adding a spacer is optional. It was done here to allow ample space to get the cable tie between the board and existing wall. There probably is enough space without the spacer to slide the tie through. Drill a single hole in the center of the spacer and insert 1 screw to secure it about 3 inches from the top and 1/3 distance from the bottom (2 total spacers)

Drill a pilot hole 1/4" from the edge of the board at the height of each spacer (optional) and insert screws to secure board to wall

Secure the brackets to the 

boards with the included cable ties, using two ties per bracket

OPTIONAL: Drill a hole beneath the bottom bracket and insert a screw. This will add extra support to prevent the brackets from sliding if the planters get heavy from large plants and water saturation. 

Attach one or both boards to the wall using the screws. Use 2 screws per level with a minimum of two places roughly 1/3 from the top and 1/3 from the bottom to secure the boards

Put annuals, strawberries, peppers or other veggies, herbs, succulents are any plants into each planter and then carefully attach to the bracket, making sure the hook is engaged before letting go!

ENJOY! Make sure the pots get adequate water. Each pot has a drainage hole and will leak into the bottom levels when saturated. It's best to manually water each pot when it's hot and dry out!
