As the summer is finally in full swing, we all like to add a bit of greenery to our outdoor spaces. If your particular space is tight and you don’t have a lot of room for potted plants on your patio or balcony, then the best way to go is always up! Bamboo screening is wonderful for creating privacy and bringing some natural materials to any space but it can look a little plain. Using some simple tin planters, you can dress up the screening and add colour or greenery to your space.
I happened to have some really inexpensive tin pots that had seen better days so that’s what I’ve used here to create a little vertical garden above my bench. You’ll want to use a pot that’s light weight like plastic or tin as they’ll be held by wire – so no terracotta or ceramic pots here. And you’ll want something that has a lip on the edge as well.
Follow my simple DIY to simply and inexpensively add planters to your bamboo screening.
