    DIY: Hanging Garden Shelves


    Above: The small-space hanging wall garden holds 20 houseplants.

    Materials

    -20 4-inch or 5-inch terra-cotta pots
    -5 pine boards, 3/4 thick and 3 feet long
    -Clothesline or 1/4-inch-thick rope
    -Cable ties
    -Cordless drill
    -4-inch metal hole saw
    -Circular saw
    -Pliers


    Above: bought 6-foot-long boards and cut them in half (alternately, you can have them cut to size at the lumber yard or store where you buy them).


    Above: After drilling pilot holes as guides,  cut holes for the pots using a hole saw. (Be sure to clamp the board to a work surface before drilling.)


    Above: Next, drilled four holes in each board for the rope (using a 5/16-inch drill bit). then threaded the rope through the holes, tying knots on the underside of the bottom board to hold them in place.


    Above: Added several zip ties beneath each board to hold the rope in place.


    Above: Spaced the shelves far enough apart to leave room for the plants to grow (just a little). To catch any water that drains from the pots, he recommends using small glass bottles suspended by wire.


    Above: Make sure you hang the garden shelves from hooks that can support the weight. Its recommends using a wooden closet rod and closet shelf brackets.
