DIY Colorful Vertical Garden On A Fence

In case you have a dull wooden fence at your backyard you can easily spice up it. You can make a colorful vertical garden of it.

Tools and materials

  • Terra-cotta pots
  • Painter’s tape
  • Spray paint
  • Flowerpot hangers
  • Wood screws
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Cordless drill
  • Wood screws


  • Using painter’s tape, tape off the rim of each pot. Coat with spray paint, following the manufacturer’s directions. Vary the color as desired.
  • Secure pot hangers to the fence using a drill and wood screws.
  • Put your pots on the hangers and you’re done. Now you just need to choose what to plant in them. That could be as herbs as flowers as any other plants you like or need.

    Anyone know if they make similar hangers that would work on a chain link fence? I have a lot of it I’d like to cover up with some cute plants, etc.

  6. Holly Says:

    It seems like a wire “ring” shape would be easy for chain link just slip the pot into the collar and twist tie the loose ends to the fence…

  7. Lindsay Says:

    This is great. I did this this weekend. The longest part was waiting until Monday for the Pot Latches to come in. I was skeptical at first, but they turned out great! I posted a link to your page and gave you credit for the idea.

  8. Diane Says:

    Beautiful idea, I love it! Especially because I have a large dog (2 years old,60 lbs.) and he just loves to run in the grass, and through my flower beds, This way they flowers would be up on the fence were he’d leave them alone,,,,,,, but where did you find the plant holders? I have a white vinyl fench and would like to achieve the same look without damaging my new fense by putting nails it. If you know who sells these hangers and maybe other hangers, please let me know. THANX!

  9. Carla Says:

    Any idea what kind of paints will work on top of the spray paint if I want to let my kids decorate these? I want them to have a choice of colors. Thanks!

  10. Karen Farmer Says:

    i ordered these at the website listed and paid thru my paypal for 3 sets! I have NOT heard from them YET!!!!!

  11. Kelly Says:

    You can always use acrylic paint instead of spray paint, but then spray paint them with a clear gloss to seal the paint.

    [...] Hanging Plants are a great alternative because no bending over is required to take care of them. You can hang plants by themselves on a post, off the side of the garage /house, or even attach them to a backyard fence. This is not only a more visually pleasing option, but your back will be thanking you at the end of the day.
