One of our major goals for this year was to finally re-do our back patio (and then some) and I am happy to say it is a goal we can finally check off our list! We still have a few things left to do as far as styling goes, but the major parts of the reno is completely finished and we are now not-so-patiently waiting for the cooler temps to arrive.
A couple months ago, Allison showed me a picture or a potted succulent wall garden on Instagram, and suggested we do something similar on the patio. I loved the idea and ran with it! We had two walls, one of which was going to hold the TV and the other that was just going to remain blank. I figured the blank wall would be a great place for this feature!
It was such a simple and cheap DIY project that I thought would be fun to share here on The Middle Edit.
I am not much of a gardener (but I am working on that), so I kept things simple and just planted some succulents for now. Eventually, as I learn more about what works in this desert climate, I would love to switch out the succulents for fresh herbs. I’m just not quite there yet.
When I first started looking into the options for hanging the pots, I thought we would be using a Pot Ring, but I ended up finding these Pot Klips on Amazon. I love that they give a floating effect to the pots and that it’s a nice clean look.
DIY Succulent Wall Garden
- Flower Pot Klips (comes with screws) – our walls are cinder block, so we didn’t need to use any reinforcement and these worked great. They can also be used on wood, plastic or metal, so they should work for most projects.
- 5”-8” Standard Clay Pots
See? Super easy! It is pretty self-explanatory once you decide where you want to hang your pots and the layout you desire.
There are so many options for wall gardens available, but this one is a great, affordable and easy way to add some interest to an empty wall.
Stay tuned for the full patio reveal in a few weeks!
