DIY Vertical Succulent Planter

Making some basic 2x4s look old with some paint and stencils, I created my very own vertical garden for planting hens and chicks (succulents). Once the frame fill out I'll have a living work of art! Full details of the project are on my blog Inspired by Charm:

    Hey Micheal so what best place outdoor to place succulent plants? Mostly shade, full sun?

      Once the succulents are all planted, no need to worry. With soil packed and the wire in place, no problem.

    Im not a big fan of succulent plants but this may give me a nudge to try some. Thank you.
