Lasrt year Home Depot adds on TV had a really cool looking vertical gardening box. I checked their site and the example was submitted by a viewer not the plans for the one shown. The viewer's take looked a like over kill. I have a pallet that I can disassemble. My patio fence is a shadow box fence so I ill need to install 1" x 1" (or larger) to screw the box to. The one I saw had a solid plywood back. I think that would add too much weight to an already heavy box. For esthetic reasons I am thinking of a box 36" wide and 24" tall.I can make the frame from the pallet ( some scabbing needed. I am thinking of tacking chicken wire to the back side and lining with heavy duty landscape cloth. I would tack landscape cloth to the front of the frame then wood lattice which I have. The front could be finished off with inexpensive 1" x framing strips. Cut holes in the cloth between the lattice openings and plant. I am thinking of maybe use one of those hole cutting things that you can put on a drill to cut holes in the top board to facilitate watering. I am still not sure how to hang it. It will be heavy.
Another thought for water is to install 2 or 3 lengths of pvc with holes drilled in it. Add the water to the PVC.
Any ideas or input would be appreciated.
