My husband started by attaching the vertical boards to our existing deck.
Privacy Plus a Garden Area!
To gain privacy in our back area, I had my husband build me vertical garden. It works great and I love all the color where it use to look so bare!
Then he added the stair risers and boards.
This is a very used, but salvageable gutter that I cleaned.
It was cut down to size and spray painted a brilliant lime green and turquoise color! I also drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.
A neighbor’s friend dropped off some cedar that he didn’t want and I thought it would be a great top for the structure.
Cross wood added to attach those colorful gutters!
My hubby attaching that cedar. The horizontal boards are also cedar from the same person. We really only had to buy the 4x4 posted and stair stringer. ( I hope that is the right terminology)
Containers ready to be filled. I liked the visual of the stair step idea but an extra added bonus was it made it easy to get to the upper gutter.
We added the wire in the back so the deer wouldn’t eat my flowers.
So it didn’t look complete, so I had my husband add on another section and it looked so much better.
I alternated the gutter color on the new section and I love it.
Another view of later on in the season. It makes me so happy to see this when I walk out and it created the privacy I wanted!
